Telehealth is a great example of how we can continue to help make a difference in the lives of Australians, by providing the option for everyone to access high -qua lity nutrition care,” said Hunt.

“Delivery of healthcare has progressed dramatically in the past 6 months. It would be a terrible disservice for all Australians if the government reduce d the ways Australians can see their health practitioner.” The call for continuing telehealth has been backed by the Select Committee on Financial Technology and Regulatory Technology in a recent interim report, and supported by leading medical bodies such as the Australian Medical Association and Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.
