Have you heard of the Victorian Virtual ED? It's an Australian first and one Victoria's busiest emergency departments (last year they treated over 75,000 patients - almost the same as the Royal Melbourne's ED!)
The Virtual ED provides emergency care for minor (non-life threatening) emergencies (like burns or a broken finger). Last year it prevent 59,000 Victorians from having to go into a hospital ED.
So how does it work?
Over the phone or video call, you'll be virtually assessed by emergency doctors and nurses. They will help organise whatever tests, prescriptions or followups you need, all from the comfort of your own own!
You can access this emergency care from anywhere in Victoria, 24/7. There are also interpreter services available for patients who speak other languages.
