On video consultations from home:
One patient mentioned that this was a unique experience for them, and that lockdown had forced them to adapt to new interactions with healthcare services within their home. I was able to relate to this and found that this was something I shared with a lot of the people I spoke to. It made me realise the importance of shared experience when working with patients in clinical situations and how this can improve outcomes for both patient and doctor.
