INSPIRE HEALTH UPDATE
Inspire Health is an Allied Health Facility & will trade as normal upon governments recommendations of 'Essential Services' within the Allied Health field of Physiotherapy, Exercise Physiology & Dietetics services.
Our hygiene practices and cleaning protocols remain firmly in place. We will continue to strictly clean our facility within two-hour windows until advised otherwise.
We are also ready to ensure we are following social distancing and enforcing government guidelines.
Thank you for your understanding during these unprecedented times, we look forward to continuing to support you with your health and wellbeing.
We ask that if you are experiencing any flu like symptoms that you refrain from attending the centre and we will do the same.
No staff will attend work with any symptoms, and you will be notified if your practitioner is unable to attend due to this.
Telehealth Services are now available at Inspire Health Services.
To further ensure that our clients are given every possible opportunity to gain access to the Allied Health Services they need, we are now offering Telehealth and Online Services for patients who prefer to use these services for Physiotherapy, Exercise Physiology and Dietetics services.
This is an online consultation that allows patients to have a consultation with an Exercise Physiologist, Dietitian or Physiotherapist via an online platform.
Telehealth sessions are a Bulk Billed service.
Most recently Telehealth services have now been approved through via the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, Workcover QLD and Private Health which ensures all patients receiving care under these banners are now eligible.
For existing patients only, please contact our reception on (07) 3846 5134 to enquire about a Telehealth consultation.
