What is Telehealth?
Telehealth physiotherapy is a health service provided via a secure online platform, consulting with your physiotherapist using a video link. Telehealth physiotherapy consultations have been proven to be effective in achieving good patient outcomes.
The Telehealth consultation will involve answering questions as well as a physical examination with education, self treatment recommendations and exercises. You will need a device with a webcam (laptop, desktop, tablet, mobile phone) and space to move with exercise equipment (weights, bands gym ball). Please wear suitable clothing for the examination and prescription of exercises. If you are a new patient to the practice you will be emailed a comprehensive Initial questionnaire to be completed and returned to the physiotherapist prior to the Consultation. This way we can register you into the system and ensure a Telehealth Consultation is appropriate or not.
You can ask questions and book a Telehealth appointment by ringing our friendly Reception staff (07) 55649009. Payment is required at the time of the Telehealth Consultation via credit card/debit card.
Focus on physio we continue to screen clients, use social distancing guidelines in waiting areas and use strict hygiene practices including line changes between patients, hand cleansing on arrival, washing of hands between clients, washing equipment and cleansing waiting area chairs.
At focus on physio, we are committed in implementing prevention policies to ensuring the health and safety of our staff and our clients. As we face weekly changes to government policies we will update you as fast as we can.
We acknowledge with gratitude our current clients who are supporting us at this time.
Stay well and active in mind and body.
