Video calls and virtual waiting rooms are helping to ensure patients In Dudley get the care they need during the Covid-19 pandemic
The secure web-based service has already been taken up by 34 services within the hospital and outpatient centres, and community services such as midwives and rehabilitation services. The Dudley Group was the first trust in the Black Country to introduce Attend Anywhere.
Adam Thomas, chief information officer for the trust:
Providing better access to our care services for patients is central to our existing strategy. There has been a huge positive ‘buzz’ for our virtual consultations from patients and doctors alike, so they are here to stay.
