Telehealth is important in rural, remote and regional areas of NSW and it is proven in having positive impacts on patients and clinicians, through reduced travel time and improved timely access to specialists and advice.

The current patient numbers in Coffs Harbour are 700+ patients, many of whom have to travel out of area for specialised services.

The Telehealth system will minimise the stress of travelling for specialist appointments at Westmead Hospital and expand the choice in specialist providers.
