The remote travel clinic

  • Travellers may be more concerned about attending the practice especially now in light of Covid
  • Again in this course we are going to look at how effective, and how we can manage, remote clinics with perhaps patients/clients being booked in for their immunisations and everything else done over the phone
  • it has made care more accessible (particularly for those who do not drive, those who work full-time and those who have caring responsibilities)
  • It has saved travel time, costs and reduced CO2 emissions
  • Patient choice should be factored into their decision-making

Equal good standards should apply to remote or face-to face consultations.

If you are prescribing (advising on prophylactic medication) then it should be able to be done safely.
