she is diabetic , high b.p. high cholestrol


it sounds ok on the face of it. Is it her own doctor? I have phone consultations (in the UK). I know some remote parts of the world have been successfully doing it online for a while. I think the key issue is to be sure of 2 things.

The doctor is reputable.

Your aunt understands what is being said and can operate the system.

Can you take advice from and talk this over with her own doctor?

Good luck


hi their i'm with larwood surgery and i do all things online from getting ordering my tablet, booking appointment even leaving them messages is so easy and confidential its a lot easier than having to either phone or go to the doctor's and having to wait if you mum's doctor have a online system then use it. it is so easy and safe hope all goes well if you need anymore advice please feel free just to ask.
