Video Call

Join Video Call


Video call is a way for you to attend a scheduled appointment with your Diabetes Tasmania dietitian or diabetes educator.

Video Call is as convenient as a phone call, with the added value of face-to-face communication. If you would like to see a dietitian or diabetes educator but do not have an appointment, please phone our team on 6215 9000.


How to join my appointment?

To attend your appointment click on the join call button above.

You will then enter your private waiting area online.

Your Diabetes Educator or Dietitian is notified when you are online, and they will join you when ready.

There is no need to create an account.  No information you enter is stored.


What do I need to make a video call?

A good connection to the internet. If you can watch a video online (e.g. YouTube) you can make a video call.

A private, well-lit area where you will not be disturbed, and you can talk freely with your clinician during your appointment.

One of these:

Google chrome web browser, with Windows or macOS on a desktop or laptop, or on an Android tablet or smartphone.

Safari web browser on an Apple desktop or laptop (MacOS), or iPad or iPhone.

You will also need:

Web-camera, speakers and microphone, which are already built into most laptops or mobile devices.

If you are using your desktop, laptop or tablet please have your phone nearby in case there are any technical issues during your appointment. Your diabetes educator or dietitian will call you to continue your appointment via phone.

How much internet data will I use?

You do not use any data while waiting to join your Video Call.

A Video Call uses less than half of the data you would use while watching a YouTube video in High Definition*.

Data use is less on lower-speed internet connections or if you are using a less powerful computer, tablet, or smartphone. These factors can also reduce the overall quality of the call.

Data use increases when there are more than two participants in the call.

*That’s about 230 MB on a mobile device, and 450 MB on a PC for a 20 minute call, which is similar to Skype® or FaceTime®. 


Getting ready to make video calls

Is it secure?

Video Calls are secure and your privacy is protected. You remain in your own private video room, that only authorised people can enter.
