How It Works

Access to Teledermatologist App

Teledermatologist has been developed to service regional and rural Australia, to be accessed by either a General Medical Practitioner or Remote Nurse when they are confronted by a significant or concerning dermatological issue and require the assistance of a Dermatologist.
However you are welcome to use our service if access to a GP or Nurse is not possible or you are outside Australia and need urgent access to a Dermatologist.
So whatever reason, disability or distance, those who are unable to travel to a Dermatologist can benefit from this service whether they live within Australia or beyond.
If you are outside Australia and urgently need a Dermatologist we may be able to assist with a diagnosis however please be aware prescription of treatment drugs will most likely not be available to be prescribed by our Dermatologists.
And you will be unable to access a medical fund rebate or Australian Medicare rebates on this service.
Please also be aware that this service is regulated and governed by Australian laws.
