I have been offering Tele-medicine consultations for many years even before Covid.
They avoid patients having to travel to a hospital, especially in light of the the to the recent COVID-19 outbreak. In addition, many of my patients travel from all over the country, and this saves them a full day trip to the North West of England to see me. They can do this from the comfort of their own home, or from an office, and it avoids them interfering with their busy lifestyles. Tele-medicine is not for everyone however, and often I need to physically examine a hand at the first consultation, and in such cases a tele-medicine consultation would not be offered.
Please contact The OrthTeam centre for an appt 0161 447 6888 and they will send an email with a specific link for a secure zoom appointment.
In using this service, we both agree to the video consultation and fully understand that it does not replace a face-to-face consultation with clinical examination. Having appreciated these limitations we would both agree that a video consultation would still have value to the management of your condition.
