With the COVID pandemic and lockdown, many patients have been reluctant or unable to attend hospital appointments. Virtual consultations have offered many patients access to doctors from the comfort and safety of their own homes. They have also given patients the opportunity to seek their preferred or recommended doctor, no matter how far they are based.
To accommodate all patients, I am able to offer virtual consultations. It is easy to use. All you need is a smartphone, a mobile device, a laptop or a computer, with a camera and speaker. I am able to share available documents and scans, if required, to help in the discussion about your condition.
If you are vulnerable and are worried about coming to hospital, please contact my secretary, details below. She will guide arrange the appointment for you at your convenience.

You will need to inform your insurer to authorise these appointments.
Please note that whilst virtual consultations offer continued access to doctors during the pandemic, a full clinical examination is not possible and a face to face appointment may become necessary.
I would like to reassure you that every effort has been taken at the hospitals where I work to ensure patient safety for those attending face to face consultations, with careful screening, temperature checks and the use of masks.
