‘Do you want to drive an hour just to get a prescription or check your symptoms? COVID has lessened restrictions on telehealth, giving more efficiencies and access to care’ says Professor Patricia Davidson. While this is a welcome innovation under COVID that should be kept up in the New Normal, at the same time, COVID has put a spotlight on healthcare disparities. ‘We have known for decades that your postcode contributes to your #health and well-being.’ Dean Davidson is Dean, The Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing, and in 2021 rejoins University of Wollongong as Vice-Chancellor.
