Remote Paediatric Consultations

Childhealthy offers a remote paediatrician video and telephone consultation service, allowing you and your child to benefit from an appointment without leaving home.

The flexibility of appointment timings and reducing travel and visits to the hospital are all proving very popular. Particularly with families living further away who have longer distances to travel.

How are Remote Consultations Carried Out?

Remote consultations can be carried out over the phone or on a video call. We can discuss what’s best for you and your child when making the appointment.

A wide range of medical issues can be assessed effectively and safely via a video consultation and medication can be prescribed remotely if needed.

Please note that in some cases, a face-to-face or physical examination may still be required.

What are the Benefits of Remote Consultations?

Remote consultations allow greater flexibility for appointment times and cut down on travel time.

From a paediatrician’s perspective, observing the child and parents at home and comfortable and relaxed in their home environment, adds great value in the assessment that may be lost in the clinic room.

There are of course some medical concerns that are best suited to a face to face appointment and clinical assessment, but many can be dealt with safely remotely.

If you have any questions about the remote paediatrician consultation service offered by Childhealthy, or would like to book a consultation, please contact us.
