"Virtual Podiatry Assessment"

About: Dewsbury Health Centre

(as the patient),

I recently needed the services of a podiatrist. I was given an appointment several weeks away but as I was in some considerable discomfort with my toe nail I had hoped for an earlier appointment. I was offered a virtual assessment with the podiatrist which I happily accepted as this gave me an appointment within 10 days. It was excellent. As long as you have a computer, broadband connection and a camera it couldn't be easier. Your virtual assessment takes place in the comfort of your own home and only takes a few minutes. The assessment quickly identified that I needed treatment and I was seen the following week. I think virtual assessment is an excellent service. It is quick, convenient and cost effective.

As an organisation we are keen to promote this service to patients as we think patients will have a positive experience, just as you have.

Thanks again for taking the time to leave your patient opinion.
