We’ve compiled some top tips from patients and healthcare professionals to help you get the most out of telephone and video appointments.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we know that more people than
ever are having their healthcare appointments held by telephone or video. For
many, this is a completely new experience and it can be a little disconcerting
having to rely on technology when you’re used to seeing your doctor or nurse
face-to-face. While many aspects of a virtual appointment will be the same as
in-person, others (including the technology itself) will be different, which is
why we’ve put this resource together.
The tips have been divided into two sections: those to bear in mind in
advance of your appointment; and those to consider during the appointment
itself. We hope they will be helpful, whether your next appointment is with a
GP, nurse, dermatologist or rheumatologist. If you have any tips of your own that you think we should add to the resource, please do get in touch and let us know.
