    As the state-wide clinical genetics service for Queensland, Genetic Health Queensland offers appointments via telehealth or telephone whenever clinically appropriate. Through Queensland’s telehealth program our patients receive quality care closer to home via telecommunication technology, which improves access to specialist healthcare for people in regional communities and reduces the need to travel for specialist advice.

    Note, not all referrals are appropriate for telehealth, in particular when the specialist needs to physically examine the patient. We strive to see patients as close to their home as possible. Our genetic specialists and triaging team will determine if telehealth is an appropriate and available option based on individual circumstances. For more information about Queensland’s telehealth program, please review the resources below.
