genetic counselling Brisbane and Telehealth
On the go
Our genetic counsellors are happy to provide telehealth services to anyone, anywhere in Australia. For an appointment with Dr Milnes, you must reside within a telehealth eligible area* (outside capital cities), a nursing home or be a patient of an eligible Aboriginal Medical Service if you would like to claim a Medicare rebate for your consultation. For more information, please speak to one of our friendly receptionists. * Due to COVID-TH item numbers, telehealth is currently a rebatable service under Medicare regardless of location.
We use a specialised telehealth platform to videoconference to your home or GP medical centre. All you need is a computer, tablet or phone with a camera, microphone and internet access. If you have sufficient bandwidth to stream TV or music, then a telehealth connection should be possible. Contact our rooms on 07 3088 6983 to find out more if you would like to access a telehealth consultation.
how does it work
Many people living outside of major cities are forced to travel long distances, often staying overnight, to access medical services. Our promise is to deliver expert genetic counselling to all Australians, because we believe that every person should have the same access to specialist medical services no matter where they live in Australia. Many people also prefer the flexibility and comfort of being in their own home.
We’ve teamed with a specialist telehealth platform that allows anyone with internet access to dial into a ‘virtual consulting room’. Once a telehealth appointment is confirmed, you will receive a link to your login page and an individual login code to allow you to access your consultation. Easy! No more travel or parking hassles. Fit your appointment in around your family’s needs.
