What is it?

Psychiatry Telehealth service connects rural Victorian patients with mental health conditions or illnesses with a Psychiatrist, via an online appointment. An appointment facilitator located at a rural health service will support patients to book and join appointments. The appointment facilitator will leave the room when the appointment starts, unless the patient indicates otherwise.

There are some specific requirements that patients must meet to access a Flying Doctor Telehealth psychiatry appointment. Please see the referral pathway for further information regarding suitable patients.
