1. DON MEDICAL TEAM - DIAMONDS OF DEVONPORT
What a great evening at the Paranaple Centre on Thursday night. Well done to the team.
2. Changes to Telehealth
if you are booked in for a zoom/ telehealth appointment , you will note that you will receive an email message from Hot Docs with a link that will take you directly the virtual consulting room, where the doctor will join you. This is a more direct , easier to use and secure portal.
Telehealth fees - when you make these appointments reception will outline the potential costs of these appointments . There is a medicare rebate but there maybe an additional gap fee.
Dr Michelle Musca will be providing some telehealth consults in late March. For more information and eligibility for these appointments please contact reception.
