Information for patients on phone and video consultations

Having a phone and video consultation

Many general practices are now offering phone and video consultations in place of face-to-face appointments, to reduce the risks from COVID-19 (coronavirus).

This document provides information and support for patients who need to see their GP, and the safest, most appropriate way to do this is by a phone or video consultation.
