Accessing Telehealth Services
Telehealth is a convenient way of accessing health services online via video or telephone. Telehealth enables you to receive services in the comfort of your own home. This is particularly important if you are confined to your home, unwell or unable to travel.
Fuel Your Life Practioners are now available to see clients via Zoom or telephone.
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO I NEED FOR TELEHEALTH?
For video consults, you can use any mobile device or desktop with audio and video capabilities. For phone consults, landlines are also suitable.
WHAT ABOUT PRIVACY AND CONFIDENTIALITY?
Strict data security measures are applied and the same requirements apply for face-to-face and telehealth consultations.
WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE ACCESS TO A CAMERA AND INTERNET?
If you don’t have access to a camera or internet you may be suitable for telephone consults.
IS TELEHEALTH AS EFFECTIVE AS FACE TO FACE SESSIONS?

Is There Anything Else I
Yes, telehealth is a great option for people to use however there are a few basic rules to follow:
Make sure you are in a private space.
Turn any other device (such as tv or radio) off.
If doing a video consult, please try to make sure your face is well-lit.
Ensure you won’t be
disturbed by other household members, including children and pets.
Be aware of your surroundings. If you don’t want the dietitian to see your kitchen, don’t have your consult in that room.
If you are concerned about others overhearing you, use headphones and discuss this with your treating dietitian.
