Click here to find out how NHS areas are using this service.

The Consultant Connect App and supporting IG secure dashboard make it very easy for NHS clinicians to securely take, store and forward photos or files direct to local and/or out-of-area NHS consultants for Photo-Messaging Advice & Guidance. Clinicians can use their personal smartphones with complete confidence that images are saved to a secure cloud and never stored on their phone.

This service is ideal for:

  • Remote consultations – use the platform to upload and securely share photos taken by patients
  • Face-to-face consultations – a ‘patient consent’ step is built into to the app removing the need for additional paperwork
  • Taking multiple images to record the history/changes to a condition over time
