How to speak to a GP when you're away from home

21 Jul 2023

As Australians once again return to post pandemic travel, it reminds us how traveling and exploring new destinations can be an exciting and fulfilling experience, but it's not uncommon for unexpected health issues to arise when we're away from home.

Whether it's a sudden illness, the need for a prescription refill or even seeking medical advice while on holidays, accessing telehealth services can be a game-changer.

Accessible Anytime, Anywhere

Our Sage telehealth services are available no matter where you are in Australia. As long as you have an internet connection, you can access a telehealth consult with a real, Australian-registered GP from the comfort of your hotel room, a cozy cafe, or even while waiting at the airport.

Convenience and Time-Saving

Traveling can be exhausting, and the last thing you want is to spend hours in a waiting room. Our Sage eliminates the need for long waiting room queues. You can easily join the queue for a telehealth consult online or by downloading the Our Sage app so you have more time for sightseeing and relaxation.

Minimal technology required

You don’t need to download any specific software to speak to an Our Sage doctor but you can however download the Our Sage app to get access to your referrals, prescriptions and medical certificates. As long as you have a mobile phone and reception or a landline phone and computer, you can use Our Sage.

Backed by a network of in person medical centres

While telehealth has many benefits, it’s not intended to be a replacement for in person medical care. With a network of Our Medical centres around Australia, we can offer a smooth transition between virtual and physical healthcare settings.

Prioritising your health on the road not only enhances your travel experience but also allows you to fully immerse yourself in the joys of exploration and discovery. So, the next time you plan a trip, don't forget Our Sage gives you easy access to a team of experienced, practicing GPs, so you can get first-class healthcare wherever you are - from the ‘burbs to the bush.
