Trans-Help and GP2U announce partnership to help truckies

The Trans-Help Foundation has announced a partnernship with GP2U Telehealth specialists to provide truck drivers with online video consultations. The partnership was launched at last week’s ITTES in Melbourne.

According to Dianne Carroll OAM, CEO of Trans-Help, the venture will provide truckies with "immediate access to doctors via video conference.

“Preventative health checks have been proven to save lives, time, and money, as well as significantly reducing the possibility of accidents,” she said. “This partnership means not only can we detect problems early, but also deliver essential health care on the spot.”

Founder of GP2U, Dr James Freeman, said the new partnership is a great fit. “Telehealth technology brings the doctor to the patient, wherever they may be,” he added. “It’s a good way to deliver services to remote locations, and to those who cannot easily access health care.”

Trans-Help already has a number of health units traversing the main roadways across Australia, providing free nurse led check-ups to truckies.

The GP2U will now assist the work of the Trans-Help nurses by providing Telehealth consultations direct to drivers, wherever they may be.

This will also allow drivers, when referred by the Health Unit staff, to speak directly to a GP or even a Specialist, and is designed to both improve access to healthcare services and get more truckies to think about looking after their health and wellbeing.
