Use your usual practice software to book an appointment – healthdirect Video Call does not have an appointment booking system but can integrate with your practice software.
Patients can start a Video Call through either:
- Your clinic link – the same link is used for all patients visiting your practice for a Video Call (it can be found on the right-hand side of your Video Call waiting area under ‘Share the link to your Waiting Area’)
- A button placed on your practice website (see how to place a button on your website).
Patients do not need any special software, passwords or individual links to access Video Call.
Email or text an appointment confirmation to your patient with either the weblink or a button your GP website. Please see how to send an Email or SMS to your patients from our service.
