Video Conference (VC) Appointments Update

We are now two months into developing and introducing or VC appointments into our clinics and surgeries. Several patients have already tried this out and to date the feedback has been very positive. If you would like to find out more about how to make or book a VC appointment, please get in touch and we will be happy to help you. We can arrange for a member of staff to do a test VC with you, or we can ask our colleagues at mPower to visit you to help you make those first few test VC calls.

Patient Access

Following a recent upgrade of the Patient Access website, some patients have experienced various technical difficulties while trying to log onto the system.

We have been advised by the service provider to ask patients who experience any difficulties, to report it to them directly through the Support Centre link on the site. The link can be found directly under the log-in box.
