A Snapshot of Healthcare Services in Western Australia

Western Australia (WA) covers a vast expanse, approximately one-third of Australia's territory. This state is home to populated cities and large amounts of rural areas.

Currently, there are nine large regional hospitals in WA and numerous country hospitals that offer a broad range of health services. Now we can provide online doctor appointments in WA too.

Like much of the country, Western Australia is contending with population growth and ageing. Both are challenges that need to be addressed by healthcare services. That can be alleviated to a degree with online and after hours doctor appointments.

Rural residents in WA are particularly affected, experiencing a life expectancy of approximately two years lower than their counterparts in metropolitan areas.

This stark disparity emphasises the need for improved access to healthcare services to address the healthcare gaps and ensure equal care.

Telehealth services are an excellent solution to the problems impacting the state today. We offer online doctor appointments WA residents can access easily, including outside nine to five hours.


What is a Telehealth appointment?

Telehealth uses online technology to provide healthcare remotely without the need for in-person visits. Patients can simply book an online dcotor appointment at a time to suit them. They then meet with an online doctor via video, all from the comfort of their homes or any location.

All you need for a telehealth appointment in Western Australia is a mobile phone or tablet. Devices must also have the following features:

  • internet connection
  • A camera such as on a smartphone, tablet or laptop with a webcam
  • Headphones or speakers
  • A microphone

You can interact with your online doctor clearly and efficiently using this audio and video technology.

Online Doctor Services Available Through Private Medical

Private Medical offers a range of telehealth style healthcare options. Most notably for non-emergency cases that do not require immediate medical attention or a physical exam.

These services include the following:

  • A diagnosis and advice on managing symptoms - available for individuals of all ages.
  • Online prescriptions
  • Online medical certificates
  • Online family GP services
  • Serving as your online family GP
  • Referrals to other practitioners or medical specialists

Benefits of Telehealth for WA Residents

Some of the main benefits of a telehealth doctor appointment in Western Australia include reducing the need for travel, accessing after hours doctors, avoiding queues at hospitals or clinics and avoiding the risk of contagious diseases at medical facilities.

Accessible Healthcare:

Telehealth doctors in Western Australia can help reduce the geographical imbalances that face many. This includes FIFO workers for example too.

Beneficial for residents in both metropolitan and rural areas, telehealth allows patients to obtain advice and treatment when and where it is convenient.

This is useful for busy, in-demand healthcare clinics in cities such as Perth and rural areas in the bush where there are fewer GPs and fewer pharmacies per capita.

Patients will save money on transportation and be able to access convenient appointments that work alongside their schedules. Including after hours doctor appointments across WA.

Personalised Care:

Telehealth can be used to target problems that are specific to residents of Western Australia.

According to the Government of Western Australia’s annual report for 2018-2019, cancer, kidney health, maternity and new born, aboriginal health and mental health and wellbeing were the main concerns of the region.

Telehealth can supplement healthcare in these areas, particularly by providing chronic care management for cancer and kidney conditions, making mental health plans and handling general health and wellness routine checks.

Independent and Private Healthcare:

Telehealth allows patients to play a more proactive role in their healthcare.

It is particularly beneficial for those seeking a second professional opinion or wanting insights from healthcare providers outside their region, all without the need to travel.

All Private Medical doctors are Australia-registered and value confidentially.

This privacy allows patients to have open conversations with their General Practitioner in their healthcare journey.
