Like many services, Immigrant health transitioned to telehealth for many consultations in 2020 - a high proportion of our patients rely on public transport, and there are challenges with social distancing in a family based clinic model working with interpreters. In 2020 - direct attendances were limited to targeted visits where examination, tests, or immunisations were essential. In 2021 - we routinely completed some visits by telehealth, including 1st visits where families prefer - which allows us to ascertain transport and technology options, and once again during lockdown we have transitioned back to predominantly telehealth visits.
