Important Updates

IMPORTANT NOTICE: We are currently having issues with our telephone numbers at our Stockport clinic. Please bear with us whilst we try and resolve this issue. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused. Thank you
Due to COVID-19 the majority of our clinics are now closed. We have temporarily moved to telephone appointments. Please do not come to clinic unless told to do so. It is important that if you have been asked to attend one of our clinics, you wear a face covering that covers the nose and mouth. Wherever possible please attend clinic alone. If there are any specific reasons you need to attend with someone else, this must be discussed during your telephone consultation.

Video Consultations

Where appropriate, you can attend your consultation online via a video call. Video calling is as convenient as a phone call, with the added value of face-to-face communication.
It can save you time and money, and brings your care closer to home.
Instead of travelling to your appointment, you enter the clinic’s online waiting area.
The health service is notified when you arrive, and your clinician will join you when ready.
There is no need to create an account.
No information you enter is stored.

Is it secure?

Video calls are secure; your privacy is protected.
You have your own private video room that only authorised clinicians can enter
No information you enter is stored.

What do I need to make a video call?

  • A good connection to the internet If you can watch a video online (e.g. YouTube) you can make a video call
  • A private, well-lit area where you will not be disturbed during the consultation
  • One of these:
    • Google Chrome web browser on a desktop or laptop, or on an Android tablet or smartphone
    • Safari web browser on an Apple iMac, MacBook, iPad, or iPhone
  • Web-camera, speakers and microphone already built into laptops or mobile devices

How much internet data will I use?

You don’t use any data while waiting for a clinician to join you. A video call uses a similar amount of data to Skype® or FaceTime®.
Smartphone and tablet users: If you can, connect to a home or work Wi-Fi network to avoid using your mobile data allowance.
