You can find some of our frequently asked questions on video consultations, on the page below.
If you need to show me your problem, you can use the video camera. If it is in a place that is hard to reach, you may find it easier to take a good quality photo or recording of the problem before hand, so it can be shared.
‘I approached Ronke to see if she could help as my daughter had a problem with her toe and in the present climate of social distancing and the increased workload on the NHS, I wanted to find a safe alternative to visiting the GP for appropriate advice. We had a video call with Ronke and she was really helpful and provided exactly what we needed. She was able to assess the problem and provide good, easy-to-follow practical advice to help my daughter until we can get to see her in person. The practical suggestions have really helped and I would certainly recommend a video call with Ronke if you need advice on how to relieve symptoms or manage a problem until normal service can resume and you can get to see her in person.’
