Video & telephone consultations

To minimise travel and exposure to COVID-19, our GPs and consultants are able to see patients with a health concern via a virtual consultation. 

Virtual consultations are a useful and effective method for initial and follow-up consultations. They reduce patient numbers in outpatient settings, making these even safer environments for consultations and diagnostics.
