Telehealth (telechemotherapy)

Our patients are looked after by the specialist teams in Rockhampton. Telehealth makes it possible for some clinic appointments and treatments to be delivered closer to home. This saves time, energy and money for our patients.

Your treating team will decide whether Telehealth is safe and appropriate for you and your treatment.

Your first few treatments will usually take place in Rockhampton, and then your treating team can consider Emerald, Biloela, or Theodore as an option.

Specially trained nurses at the community hospitals link with the oncology nurses in Rockhampton via telehealth to administer your chemotherapy.

Emerald, Biloela, Theodore hospitals are an integral part of CQ Health Cancer Care Services.  Trained staff in these hospital work closely with specialist doctors, oncology nurses and pharmacists in Rockhampton to deliver the best standard of care to patients close to home.
