Doctor virtual consultation with patient via online

We understand that it’s not always easy to come in for an appointment if you live far away or are busy with other commitments. You can now receive support from the comfort of your own home or anywhere else! In order to be accessible and help as many people as possible, our specialists conduct “Virtual Consultations” over a GDPR compliant video/voice conferencing software. All virtual consultations will be audio and video recorded and calls will be encrypted end-to-end for security. These virtual consultations may be stand alone initial consultations/follow-ups or part of a clinical plan.

Planning for virtual consultation

In order to get the best out of any virtual consultation, please follow the below suggestions:

  • Email all the necessary information about yourself, including previous medical conditions, medications, allergies and notes on previous consultations.
  • Have a reminder in your diary for the time and date of consultation
  • Ensure you have the correct phone number or video link for the consultation
  • Check that your computer audio and video is functioning
  • Have a quiet room with good lighting, so that the doctor/dietitian can see you well.
  • Write down all the problems to be mentioned and questions to be asked.
  • If you are discussing weight loss, inform the doctor/dietitian of all the weight loss plans you have been through.

What happens during and after a virtual consultation (Video/telephone)

During the consultation, there will be an in-depth discussion and holistic assessment, considering all relevant details such as your previous weight loss experience, medical conditions, eating and sleeping patterns, childhood, relationships and environmental influences. The doctor will try and find out the reason for weight gain, motivation for weight loss and the impact of weight gain on your physical health, confidence and self- esteem. The doctor will assess if you have any hormonal cause for weight gain. They will also determine whether any relevant investigations or blood tests are required*. 

Following your initial consultation, the team will determine your suitability for one of our Bespoke Weight Management Plans, if you wish to join one. The Plan(s) offered will be appropriate for your needs and usually involves 3 months of intensive support from a specialist team to help you achieve healthy, sustainable weight loss. During our Plans, we also seek to address weight-related conditions such as Type 2 diabetes, hypothyroidism, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), infertility, menopause, erectile dysfunction and many others.

*Cost of blood tests or investigations are not included in the consultation fees.
