Video and Telephone Consultations
Our surgeons are continuing face-to-face consultations however, upon request and if appropriate for your care, our surgeons can now offer new and existing patients with consultations via video-conferencing (e.g. Skype, Zoom, Facetime etc) or telephone for when video-conferencing is not available.
Please contact us to discuss whether a “virtual” consultation will be suitable for you.
