FAQs

Do Phone Or Video Consultations Work?

Yes. You’d be surprised how thorough a phone or video consultation can be, although there are some natural limitations imposed by working remotely. If you have the choice of either phone or video, a video consultation would usually be more effective.

What Do I Need To Be Able To Have A Video Consultation?

You’ll need to have:

  Internet access
  Access to a camera on your phone, tablet, laptop or desktop PC; and
  Access to Skype or Zoom

If you don’t have all of those, choose a phone consultation.

What Video Consulting Apps Do You Use?

We’ll complete your consultation over Skype or Zoom. Both are free to use.

What Will Happen After My Consultation?

Your consultation may give you all the information you need to alleviate your knee pain, but we may wish to carry out further diagnostic work such as a scan. Your consultant will explain what will happen next.

If I Need A Further Consultation, Scan Or Treatment, Will Coronavirus Delay It?

It may well do. Things are changing very fast, and your consultant will be able to give you a clearer idea of timescales when you speak.
