Our team at Newcastle Aquatic Physiotherapy are now providing online consultations while self-isolation measures are in place for NSW in response to COVID-19. We currently offer one-on-one video-conferences using Zoom and telephone-based consultations where video-conferencing is not accessible. All you require for a video-conference is a well-lit room, a computer, laptop or smartphone with a camera and comfortable clothing so that your physiotherapist can assess your movement and guide you through appropriate exercises.
Online consultations are now subsided by Medicare provided that you have a Team Care Arrangement with your GP. Online consultations are currently funded by DVA, Worker's Compensation/CTP (on a case-by-case basis) and most private health funds.

Once the appointment has been scheduled we will send an email to confirm the appointment with instructions and guidelines to help you set-up. You will receive a reminder email the day prior to your appointment with a link to a Zoom meeting. Please refrain from clicking the link until 10 minutes prior to your appointment.
The first time this happens you will be prompted to download the Zoom app - it’s free! You only need to do this once. Once you click on the meeting link the app will open a window with your physio waiting and ready to help.
