I also offer face-to-face consultations and am delighted to be able to see my patients in person again. Please contact the admin team to book: firstname.lastname@example.org
Since the COVID-19 pandemic, I have been offering remote E-Consultations in replacement of in-person clinic consultations.
Remote consultations are becoming necessary to control the response to coronavirus. By conducting your consultation from your own home via video reduces the risk of transmission and allows patients in at risk groups or those with travel difficulties to continue to be seen by experts like me.
As dermatology is a visual specialty many skin complaints can be diagnosed and managed online. If further tests or treatments are required, then I may ask you to attend an in-person consultation in my clinic or refer you back to your own GP or local dermatologist.
What to expect
I will conduct your consultation in the comfort of your own home from my office. My appointment times are 30 minutes for a general dermatology consultation and 60 minutes for a psychodermatology consultation. I offer longer appointment times to discuss your skin complaint in sufficient detail. You will be asked to provide good quality photographs of your skin prior to the appointment and fill out a basic medical questionnaire. The video consultation will be conducted with the same principles of an in-person consultation. I will take a full history of your skin complaint and a supportive medical history, as well as asking questions about wellness and lifestyle where relevant. The physical examination will be replaced by your pictures, which will be studied closely by me.
If your skin requires treatment a prescription will be posted directly to you. You are then able to take it to a pharmacy. I will write a letter to you about our discussion and can share this with your GP if asked.
What do I need?
For a remote consultation you will need to book online. You will have the opportunity to write a short description of your condition and upload images as part of the booking process. You will receive a confirmation and basic medical questionnaire to complete prior to the consultation. The consultation can be carried out via video through your mobile telephone/tablet/laptop/PC. If you do not have access to any of these or experience any difficulties, we can arrange telephone consultations if we have received adequate images of your skin complaint.
