LifeTec’s services are considered essential services by the government. We have the technology and capability to work remotely utilising tele-consultation and we will encourage consumers to utilise this system where they can. This may mean that we engage with consumers, and other stakeholders differently – less through face to face meetings than we may under normal circumstances. Health professionals will follow strict COVID Safe guidelines when providing face-to-face services.
