How does it Work?
Just like a face-to-face appointment, during a virtual consultation you will receive expert, one-on-one care from our world-class consultants to help you return to optimum health as soon as possible.
Your specialist will listen to you carefully, taking into account your condition and previous medical history to help diagnose and recommend the best treatment going forward, all in the comfort of your own home.
Please note, for your safety we are currently unable to offer further onward diagnostics or treatment privately unless your consultant considers your appointment to be time critical.
To book your appointment, please call our dedicated appointments team on 020 3944 3196 or complete our appointments request form.
