New video technology based in Millom Community Hospital means that on Saturdays between 9.00am and 1.30pm suitable patients can be offered the option of a consultation with a CHOC GP via a video link to CHOC headquarters in Carlisle.
The purpose of the secure telehealth link is to enable direct communication between Waterloo House GP Surgery and Furness General Hospital enabling Nurse Practitioners or General Practitioners to call on the expertise of senior consultants in the Emergency Department to remotely triage a patient for a second opinion.
