Strike action by junior doctors, consultants and radiographers is taking place across our hospitals during September and October. We'll contact you directly if your appointment is affected.

Video consultations

A clinician may ask if you would like your outpatient appointment to take place by video.

Video consultations can save you time and money as you will not need to travel to one of our hospitals. They can also be beneficial if you find it difficult to travel to hospital, or feel more comfortable talking about your health in your own home.

We use a live video calling platform called eClinic. It enables you to have consultations with clinicians online using just your smartphone, tablet or a computer.

You will not normally have a video consultation if you need blood tests or scans or if your clinician needs to carry out an examination.

Attending your appointment

If you agree to attend a video consultation appointment, you will receive a pre-appointment letter providing further information. A link to access your appointment will be sent to you via text or email before your consultation.
