Our Mission

At Rural Medical Clinic, our mission is to provide high quality, comprehensive care for our patients and to create stability in healthcare for our community

We recognise that there is a high demand for specialist mental health care in our region, in particular for children and adolescents. This includes assessments for:
• Learning and developmental difficulties
• Autism spectrum disorders
• Attention deficit disorder
This is why we have started referring patients to a telehealth service called Dokotela. Currently, the wait time to see a Paediatrician in the region is several months.
At Dokotela, it’s only weeks.
“Dokotela is an Australian owned and operated company making specialist care more accessible by connecting patients across Australia with specialist doctors and clinicians through a secure video-conferencing platform. Our team of doctors and staff have significant clinical and medical practice administration experience, ensuring patients and practitioners receive the highest quality of service and outcomes.”

Telehealth is essentially like skype. The appointments are performed in the practice using our software.
Apart from the initial $33 fee, the appointments are fully bulk billed.

It’s Easy
Short wait times and bulk billed appointments.

Specialists’ discuss treatment with your GP and provide written reports
Experienced Specialists
Dedicated Psychiatrists, Paediatricians, Psychologists, Geriatricians and more
