Video Consultation – you must have chrome search engine, a device such as a smart phone, iPad, or computer with a camera and microphone.
Telephone Consultation – you just need a home phone or mobile telephone.
We have already taken Video consultations with very positive outcomes. For example managing an injury to a big toe after a back yard game of soccer with the kids went wrong.
Once you have made a booking you shall receive a confirmation email with the link which you just click on when the time comes for the appointment.
