About the Virtual Health Toolbox:
This toolbox collates and indexes a wide range of resources that have been collaborated on, resourced, endorsed, and recommended for use by the Regional & Rural Telehealth strategic plan project and key stakeholders of the Loddon Mallee Health Network (LMHN). This is to support the delivery of high quality, safe and accessible health care across the health services of the Loddon Mallee Region (LMR).
