Teledermatology 

‘Transforming Healthcare Through Innovation’

The Teledermatology Project in Dorset, which is commissioned by Dorset CCG, is having a really positive impact on patient care. Clinicians are able to use the PhotoSAF feature on the Consultant Connect App, alongside e-RS, to get quicker specialist Advice & Guidance on dermatology cases.

This short video, about the Teledermatology Project, features interviews with local GPs, consultants and a commissioner.

 In numbers

  • The App was introduced to Dorset in September 2018. 
  • Over 90% of GP practices signed up to the App.
  • 4,500 photographs taken via the App.
  • 60% of submitted cases do not need to be seen by Dermatology Services
  •  Local consultant dermatologists aim to respond via e-RS within 48 hours
