Video consultations for elective/trauma care

by Ankit Desai | 5 months ago | in Planned and Elective Care

Uploaded on behalf of Julia Cattermole (Service Manager – T&O) The biggest change that has been implemented and is likely to stay is the Video consultations. We aim to do at least 50% of clinics over video, going forward, even once the full lockdown and social distances is no longer required.

This will reduce the need for patients to travel to the hospital, lowering emissions, save on parking charges and reduce the need to patients to take time off work to attend an appointment. There will always be a need for patients to be seen in person, so face-to-face clinics will continue. Currently patients that have video consultation are sent a questionnaire afterwards and the results are being audited.  We need to ensure that the patients are happy with this service before a final decision to continue this service is implemented post-covid-19.

 

What is needed to sustain the change?
