VVED (Victoria Virtual Emergency Department) is a public health service to treat non-life-threatening emergencies in designated areas of Victoria. This DOES NOT include Casey or Cardinia. You can connect though if you have COVID from anywhere in Victoria. The VVED allows patients to talk to emergency nurses and doctors from their homes or workplaces. If you have a non-life-threatening emergency, you can connect virtually with staff, who will be able to provide medical advice. This service allows you to receive emergency advice in your home and keep your care closer.

Telephone Consultations

From the 1st of July 2021, there will only be two remaining items eligible under Medicare for a phone consultation, which are standard appointments for scripts or results. Any other appointment type eg Plans etc, will not be covered and will require an in-person consultation

Repeat Scripts

To ensure optimal medical care, a review of your medical condition must take place before a repeat prescription can be provided. You can be allocated a consultation for a repeat prescription.

Patient Results

If your doctor sends you for any investigations it is preferable that you return to see your doctor to discuss the results. However, the doctor may ask you to phone for the results.

However, it is essential that you exercise your responsibility to either return for a review or call in one week to act as double-check that your result has been processed and seen by the doctor.
