Video consultations are being used increasingly more often in general practice. They can be extremely convenient for patients who find it difficult, or are unable to, attend the practice.
If you have been asked to have a video consultation with a GP, you will need to have an electronic device, such as a phone or computer. This will need to have a microphone, camera and internet connection (3G/4G also possible). The vast majority of mobile phones have these capabilities now.
You will have been given an appointment time by our reception staff. To start your video consultation, simply go to this address 5 minutes before your appointment time-
Please only go to the above link if you have been given an appointment with a GP for a video consultation.
This will take you to a sign in page where you will have to input some basic information, such as your name and date of birth. You will then be entered into a ‘virtual waiting room’, where the GP will pick up the call. Please be patient if the GP does not answer your call straight away- there may be other patients being seen- but we will try and see you as near to your appointment time as possible.
