The current COVID-19 crisis has resulted in the suspension of face-to-face consultations for all but the most urgent of conditions. However, Mr Gaunt will be available for telephone or video consultations until normality resumes: to proceed in this way please call my secretaries on 01223 305858 for more details or email firstname.lastname@example.org
All Medical Insurance Companies have agreed to pay for these consultations as normal during this time, as per your policy. This will enable us to provide a service to new and post-operative patients.
For video consultations you would need a telephone or laptop with a camera. If you already have SKYPE enabled, then we can use that, otherwise we can use the ZOOM conferencing app. Mr Gaunt would email you a link from ZOOM, you click on the link and the software connects you automatically. If you wish to download the ZOOM conferencing app, it is free.
For new patients we are able to provide an initial assessment of the condition and an explanation of treatment options available and information leaflets, prices etc, so that you have time to consult these. Once the COVID-19 crisis is over, a simple scan can be performed in my clinic to firm up the options prior to scheduling treatment.
For follow-up patients we are able to assess the results of surgery, answer any queries and plan additional treatment (e.g. for threadveins etc) once normal service resumes. If any complications require treatment such as antibiotics, then a prescription could be sent to you or arranged via your GP.
We thank you for your continued support and understanding during this unprecedented time.
