TalkSport understands the number of telehealth appointments a hospital has to offer is often more than one per week, with some offering three or four appointments per week.
While telehealth coverage is usually limited to primary care, there are also other providers offering care to people who need it, including physiotherapy, occupational therapists, massage therapists and dietitians.
Some hospitals offer services like personal injury, emergency medical treatment, emergency care and more, while others, like St John’s, offer health insurance and medical assistance.
Some of the most popular telehealth services are provided by the Royal College of General Practitioners and the Royal Australasian College of GPs.
The College has more than 7,000 members across Australia and a nationwide network of more than 30,000 patients.
The College also has more members than the Royal Australian College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.
