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.
