Telehealth has made it so much easier to get the help I need for my daughter who has very high anxiety and OCD. By definition it is often extremely stressful for myself and my daughter to see practitioners in person, especially when having to travel 100km to Sydney from the Blue Mountains. Telehealth has improved the lives of thousands of Australians, and has worked extremely well. We have the proof that it can work long term and there is no reason for it not to be permanently available. Please don't go backwards on this very important and essential improvement.

Thanks for adding your voice.

People with disabilities, mobility restrictions or caring responsibilities have found this service to be a game changer.
The government needs
To open themselves to the idea that this is not just suitable for ritual and regional areas.
Please keep telehealth as an option for everyone.

The pandemic forced able bodied citizens to experience the reality that disabled and isolated members of our society live with every day. Telehealth benefits them immeasurably and shouldn't be removed.
