What about people with spinal cord injury (SCI)?

If you have tetraplegia (quadriplegia) or a high-level paraplegia injury and / or you have lung or breathing problems, you may be at higher risk of complications from respiratory infections.

Your spinal specialist or nurse consultant can assess your level of risk and this can often be done over the phone to reduce unnecessary contacts. Many less acute health issues and questions can now be addressed through Telehealth services – including local doctors and physicians – and can be bulk billed through Medicare.
