Video Consultation Appointments (VCA) are an alternative way to provide outpatient Physiotherapy appointments, which enables the Physiotherapists to consult with a patient by video at their home or any other appropriate location, with the aim to reduce patient travel, promote social distancing and reduce footfall throughout the Trust. MTW currently uses a system called Attend Anywhere and this has proved invaluable in providing an extra level of care that telephone appointments cannot. Use of VCA within Physiotherapy is about offering patients a choice of receiving their consultation differently.
We are able to offer virtual, telephone and face-to-face appointments within Outpatient Physiotherapy. Face-to-face appointments are currently limited due to Trust guidelines surround the Covid-19 pandemic and will be discussed on an individual basis, and where a clinical need is identified.
