The aim is to use the latest technology to give patients greater flexibility on how they access Primary Care ser- vices.
GP partners Dr Jenny Layton-Henry and Dr Raj Kanwar say their new video consulting service is com- pletely secure. It has been designed by Egton, the com- pany which provides the NHS GP software for all of South Warwickshire and is also one of the main NHS Primary Care software providers in England.
It will allow patients to consult a doctor without having to attend an appointment at the surgery. They can now choose to have a video consultation at home or in the office – anywhere where they can access a secure com- puter in a private environment.
Those GPs who do the consultations have a specially designed secured location in the surgery from where they provide this service and, if during the video consul- tation it transpires that a face-to-face consultation should take place, this will be arranged within an appro- priate timeframe. To find out more, ask at the surgery’s reception or phone 01926 640491. Source
