Telemedicine

We offer access to the Ontario Telemedicine Network. A telemedicine appointment is just like a regular medical appointment, only the specialist you will be seeing and speaking with is on a monitor. There is a video camera and monitor at each end, so you can see each other. Some popular examples include appointments with psychiatrists and dermatologists. It is also used for family visits with loved ones who are attending treatment outside the community. Some correctional facilities also offer family visits through telemedicine.

Telemedicine provides quicker access, right from the comfort of the Health Centre. For more information about accessing this service, please contact the Health Administrative Assistant.
