Top Tips for the Best Experience from Your Virtual Video Consultation
- Practice with your equipment before your appointment to ensure it works and you are familiar with the controls - try it on a friend
- If you’re using Zoom, make sure you know how to turn on and off the Mute Function to help reduce background noise
- Choose a quiet space where you won’t be disturbed
- Think of what you may need to show the physiotherapist and how that will work with your equipment - e.g. a desktop PC may be too difficult to show some leg movements
- A laptop or Smartphone may be more adaptable in some situations.
- Choose somewhere to position your equipment that will give a good view rather than having to hold it for the duration of the call
- Someone to help you by holding your phone or tablet may be helpful in some cases
Security Issues and On-Line Consultations – your personal data is important to us
Skype is currently our preferred method of performing On-Line Video Consultations but we can also use WhatsApp, Facetime and Zoom fi you prefer. Please check and adjust your security settings to maximise their security features on your preferred platform.

"I just want to say thank you for looking after me. I hope - in the nicest possible way of course - that I won't be seeing you again too soon!"
