GP case study: Teledermatology via the Consultant Connect App

In this video, GPs in Solihull explain how using Photo A&G through the Consultant Connect App allows them to share images directly with a community GPER.

GP case study: Teledermatology via the Consultant Connect App

Our Photo Advice & Guidance project in Solihull, which is commissioned by Birmingham and Solihull CCG, is having a really positive impact on patient care. GPs are able to use the PhotoSAF feature on the Consultant Connect App to immediately and securely share dermatology images with a community GPER – benefiting them and improving patient care and experience.

One of the most common questions we encounter when discussing Photo Advice & Guidance is “what do clinicians think about it?”  This short video answers that question and features interviews with local GPs and the Community Specialist in Dermatology who receives the photos from GPs via the Consultant Connect App.
