Because of the trying times nowadays, it is difficult for some people to go to a clinic and get a doctor’s consultation face to face. And sometimes, we know you don’t have the energy to go to a clinic for your health concerns. If you are looking for a telehealth clinic that can address your medical emergencies, the doctors at Cairns West Medical Centre are there for you.
Experienced doctors and nurses can assist you with your concerns. Telehealth consultations are offered for all patients who cannot visit our facility for any reason. The team can offer different telehealth services, such as e-prescriptions after the consultation, to allow you to buy medicine or undergo medical procedures when they need to.
