Video & Phone Consultation

It can be challenging for people living with brain, nerve and muscle conditions to attend face-to-face appointments at our Neuroscience Clinic, due to difficulties with mobility.

Patients from the Neuroscience Clinic at NNI@TTSH Campus can continue to receive care while at home via video and phone consultation with their care team.

 

What is Video Consultation (VC)? 

This is an online consultation service offered to patients on active follow-up at NNI@TTSH Campus. Patients and their caregiver can receive medical advice from their healthcare provider (doctor, nurse, psychologist etc.) while staying home.

Consultations are held via Zoom, a video conferencing app via an internet-enabled mobile, tablet or computer. Medications, if any, will be delivered to your preferred address.

  • 70% saved more than an hour on travelling time
