Consult with a fertility specialist online via phone or video conference.
Australians in regional New South Wales now have better access to highly specialised fertility care.
Using telehealth, patients in remote and rural areas can have a phone or video consultation with IVFAustralia’s leading fertility specialists.
This service aims to improve access to fertility care and reduce the travel time and expenses for regional patients.
If you are having trouble conceiving a fertility specialist can assess your situation and help you understand the cause of pregnancy delay. If you require fertility treatment you may be able to have some of your treatment conducted locally and only travel to Sydney or Canberra for assisted reproductive procedures such as egg collection and embryo transfer.
Medicare funds some telehealth, but only if it is between a patient and a specialist and you are in an eligible geographical area. Check eligible service areas here.
You will need a valid referral from a GP. For video conferencing you will need a suitable computer and internet connection.
Please note that depending on your situation a specialist may advise you of the need for a face-to-face consultation.
To request a phone or video consult please call 1800 111 483.
