Skype Consultation

If you are unable to travel to one of our clinic locations, or are based elsewhere in Australia, you can still receieve the expert care and support of an NHW dietitian through an online (Skype) consultation

Your consultation will be conducted the same as if it were a face to face consultation, however you will need access to Skype (a free computer software application that allows you to enjoy a face-to-face consultation with your dietitian) as well as a computer webcam and speakers.

If required, your dietitian will email any handouts etc. to you. These will be in pdf format so can be read on any computer. If you don’t already have software to read this type of file you can download Adobe Reader (free).

Skype can be downloaded from this link: https://www.skype.com/en/ and instructions for installation are also available on the Skype website.

On the day of your appointment…

  1. Log on to Skype ahead of your appointment time
  2. Check that your microphone, speakers and webcam are working properly. Try making a ‘test call’ to ‘Skype test call’ with a friend to check the volume of your microphone and speakers. If you hear feedback or screeching from your speakers try using headphones instead
  3. Your dietitian will start a Video Call at your appointment time
