If you need a follow up, you and the doctor you should discuss this before the consultation ends. The doctor may suggest booking another telehealth appointment or a face to face visit.
The doctor will check with you to ensure you understand what they think the problem is and what should be done about it. This may include any or all of the following:
• Arranging another follow-up appointment for you
• Arrange a lab test eg a blood test for you
• Arranging a face to face appointment for you
• Writing a referral to a specialist or allied health service eg hospital, physiotherapist
• Sending you some educational material about your condition/problem.
