How it works


Your GP or nurse practitioner can refer you to Dokotela


Dokotela will contact you to arrange an appointment with one of our experienced Psychiatrists.

Feel Better

Your psychiatrist and primary care providers will work with you to develop and implement a treatment plan for improved mental health and wellbeing


You can have your appointment from your home (if suitable) or from our teleconferencing hub in Roselands (2195). Please see the link below for directions to this clinic.

Head to Health Roselands (Canterbury)

Alternatively, you can have your video conference appointment from your GP clinic or hosted by your treating clinician. Your clinician may be a nurse, psychologist, peer support worker or any other professional helping you with your mental health. Please contact them to discuss when you can go to their practice for your appointment. 

Your clinician will need to join the consult with you. Please ensure you or your clinician have a device with a camera and microphone and a good internet connection.

Wait times for the initial psychiatry appointment can be up to 6-8 weeks. Wait times can differ for appointments hosted at the teleconferencing hub. 

We can also place you on a cancellation list for an earlier appointment (please send us an email [email protected] requesting to be added to the waitlist after booking your appointment).

Please note that we are not an emergency service. If you do require urgent care, please see your general practitioner, or go to the emergency department at your local hospital.
