After nearly 10 years of partnership with the Baker Institute, Flying Doctor Telehealth (FDT) concluded its Endocrinology service as of Thursday 30 June, 2022. This was difficult decision to make, and is a direct result of the recent Medicare changes to rural health service provision, which has made the service unsustainable.
While of course we are disappointed with this outcome, we are also proud of what our team has achieved since the service began in 2011. Flying Doctor Telehealth has supported nearly 8,000 appointments with approximately 2,000 Endocrinology clients located across Victoria, and we remain committed to these clients as we work through this transition period.
All other FDT services are still available at this time.
We thank all of our partners and clients for your ongoing support of Flying Doctor Telehealth and The Baker Institute.
