Top Tips for Telehealth
Please turn off your TV or radio or move to a quiet, private area. If noise is hard to control you may want to consider using headphones.
So we can see you clearly, ensure that you are sitting in a well-lit area and avoid back-lighting where possible.
If using your phone or mobile device, make sure it is fully charged before your appointment.
Using telehealth is easy and convenient.
The Role of Telehealth During COVID-19
The COVID-19 coronavirus is highly contagious. For many people, keeping themselves or their loved ones safe involves reducing their trips out in public and staying home as much as possible.
Telehealth allows you to keep up to date with your healthcare whilst reducing your risk of catching the virus, helping you to stay healthy at home.
