Appointments

TeleHealth Appointment

ECU is now offering TeleHealth appointments.

As part of the Australian Governments response to COVID-19 we are able to bill Telehealth services. All Medicare eligible Australians and overseas health fund participants can now receive these services. Telehealth is a medical appointment conducted by video consultation or telephone. It allows you to access a medical practitioner while not having to travel to the clinic.

To make a TeleHealth appointment follow the instructions available in the downloads section of this page.

Clinic Appointment

TeleHealth appointments are recommended, but you can also make an appointment at the Joondalup or Mount Lawley Campus during the hours of 8.30am and 4.30pm (AWST).
