Video Appointments

What is a video appointment?

A video appointment is a way to meet with us without needing to travel.  You and your practitioner will be able to see and hear each other using a secure online service.

If you find it difficult to get to your appointments in person, this could be an easier option for you.  Some patients choose video appointments so that they don't need to leave home or work.

For others it means they can bring someone to the appointment who wouldn't be able to attend in person.
