Specialist Outreach NT (SONT)
Specialist outreach services in the Northern Territory (SONT) provide the logistics and coordination to support remote health visits. SONT is also a liaison point between remote clinics and specialists.
Clinical specialist services are accessed through:
- outreach to remote-living patients
- outpatient care delivered from hospitals
- TeleHealth consultations.
Find out what types of services are available in remote communities and how to meet with a visiting medical service.
In addition to major funding from the Northern Territory Government, SONT is assisted by the Australian Government's Rural Health Outreach Fund (RHOF - formerly known as MSOAP).
This provides important support to the travel and administrative expenses of outreach service delivery.
