Update: Virtual Appointments with Physiotherapy Outpatients Service

7th July 2020

Thank you to the Rotary Club of Colchester

During lockdown, the Physiotherapy Outpatients service have been, and continue to, follow the guidance related to distancing and shielding. Appropriate restrictions have been put in place related to non-essential contacts allowing the team to carry out as much work virtually as possible. Having the kit has enabled the physiotherapists to assess patients via video link, avoiding the need for at risk people to attend clinic.

The Rotary Club of Colchester have funded five cameras and headsets for the Physiotherapy Outpatients service which will enable clinicians to contact patients via video link and carry out virtual consultations.

As we begin to return to some face to face services, we will be able to offer virtual consultations to those who would struggle to attend a clinic appointment; around work, childcare, and carer's commitments or due to access difficulties.

Moreover, the cameras will increase team connectivity as team meetings and training can be carried out virtually, saving time for clinicians who would previously have had to travel to meetings- this time will now be used to provide more clinical appointments.
