Video consultations

Our digital front end post pandemic

We provide a digital-first service with an initial video consultation. This allows for a careful history to be taken, scans, hearing, balance and bloods tests to be ordered and where appropriate a trial of medication or other therapeutic intervention. The follow up appointment is in my face-to-face clinic at Circle Reading hospital (for adults) or Townlands Memorial hospital (for children).

We use the highly-secure Zoom for Healthcare application as our video consultation platform.
