The Royal Free Private Patients Unit is now offering patients the opportunity to undertake video consultations from home. Using technology called Videxia it is now possible for patients to dial into a meeting room from home and have a personal consultation with their doctor.
This technology allows for the patient to minimise their visits to the hospital benefiting those who find travelling an issue. Whether public transport is limited, or the hospital location is simply too far away, video consultations can save patients a great deal of time and minimise disruption to their regular activities.
Video consultations are becoming increasingly popular when supporting patients to self care and also in obtaining a second opinion on the condition you may have.
It is still important to receive the appropriate care from your consultant or specialist, whether in person or via a screen. Video consultations take the stress away from what could be a time consuming and stressful journey.
To find out more or to book a video consultation , please contact our enquiries team on 020 7317 7751. Our team is available to speak to you Monday – Friday from 8am to 6pm.
