Monitor your health and wellness from home using simple technology as part of the Virtual Nursing program. Keep in regular contact with your health team without having to leave your home, using a computer or handheld device (iPad/ Tablet).

Delivered by Feros Care, you will be provided with a touch-screen computer and measuring devices so you can record your vital signs like your blood pressure, oxygen levels and blood sugars each day. Your results are transmitted securely to a specially trained virtual Registered Nurse for review. It can also be sent to your GP or specialist. 

The best thing about Virtual Nursing is that it gives you the confidence of knowing someone’s keeping a close eye on your health without the need to constantly travel to appointments. You can discuss your results with your virtual Registered Nurse via telephone call on any weekday.

My Feros Care Telehealth Nurse was empowering me. She gave me goals and believed in me. We were able to build a special relationship with each other – it was something I was looking forward to.
