There is an additional charge for home visits due to the extra time required to travel to a home or care facility. Please contact us to discuss external visits in greater detail.We may also be able to treat via Skype™. We are currently trialling using Skype™ (www.skype.com) for consultations with clients who live a long distance away from our practices or those living in rural areas.
Skype™ is a freely available software application that allows people to make voice and video calls over the Internet. Calls to other users within the Skype™ network are usually free.The effectivess of making video calls using Skype™ is dependent on the speed of your Internet connection.
Ideally, initial consultations are conducted face-to-face when the client travels to Canberra but Skype™ can be used for the initial consultation if absolutely necessary. If Skype™ is not a viable option, our therapists can also teleconference with clients over the telephone.To make a physiotherapy appointment using Skype:
- Download the free Skype™ software onto your computer from www.skype.com and test your capacity to use the system in your geographical area.
- Telephone Neurospace on 02 6162 0450 to book an appointment time with therapist. Charges will be made for the appointment at our normal rates as though you were here in the rooms.
- Arrange a test run of equipment with the receptionist to be completed as soon as possible, to confirm that the appointment will be able to go ahead. The receptionist will note all your Skype contact details and confirm the quality of the connection.
