At South East Dermatology Stafford we provide video consultations via the internet for patients in rural and regional areas.
We think it is important that rural and regional patients are not disadvantaged and we have discounted access to telehealth.
These consultations may be directly with the patient at home or at the patients General practitioner (with the GP or Nurse present).
Skype is the software we use at Stafford for telehealth. This software is free to download onto your computer, tablet or phone and once set up the process is similar to making a phone call.
Telehealth consultations are not recorded.
At Stafford our reception staff can help to arrange the set up of skype and support you through the consultation process.
We will often ask you or your GP to send us photos prior to the consultation. This will allow the Dermatologist to examine the area much as they would in a face to face consultation.
