Telehealth Webinar for General Practice

Prestantia Health's Dr. Paresh Dawda co-presented a webinar on Telehealth for AGPAL (Australian General Practice Accreditation Limited.)

Video Consultations

As the COVID19 crisis escalates we are increasing our offering of video consultations to our patients.  Many of our patients are elderly or have chronic conditions. Many reside in residential aged care. We are offering video consultations as a way to reduce the risk of spreading.  We are grateful for the support of all the residential aged care facilities we visit in facilitating video consultations.

The use of our video consultation service is simple and straightforward.  Watch this animation for simple instructions.


Team based care

At Prestantia Health we believe the best outcomes and experience of care for our patients can only be achieved by a team-based approach to care.  Modern healthcare is complex and so a team brings the ability to manage and support that complexity in a way an individual doctor cannot. Hear from some members of our team.

Our response to the Coronavirus pandemic

The Covid19 pandemic is creating very challenging circumstances for the whole community. Prestantia Health delivers medical care to people in residential aged care, disability homes and housebound people with complex and chronic conditions. Prestantia Health's response to Covid19 is guided by the complex mix of Commonwealth Policy, Territory policy, aged care facilities policies and protocols, our own policies and protocols, concerns for occupational health and most importantly, concern for our patients. Our response is a proportionate one, which may change based on emerging guidance.


The World Health Organization has announced that COVID-19 is a pandemic.  At Prestantia Health many of our patients are elderly or have chronic conditions and so are more vulnerable to the effects of COVID-19. We all have our role to play.  This article will constantly be reviewed and updated during the pandemic to reflect changes to our services and advice to our patients and clients.
