Share Your Views on Remote Health Care Appointments

Researchers from University College London (UCL) want to understand how the increasing use of remote consultations has affected patients.

They are keen to hear from people (aged 18 or over) living in the London area who, since the start of the pandemic in March 2020, have had a remote appointment via video or phone call with either a GP practice about a mental health concern, or a hospital cardiology department about a heart condition.

If you would like to take part in an interview to discuss your experiences, please contact the research team at: arcnt.remote-consultation@ucl.ac.uk

The interview will last around 30 minutes and will be held either by phone or video call. It will be recorded. The researcher will ask for your thoughts on remote health consultations. For example, how did you find the experience and how could it be improved? The researcher will not ask you to discuss specific details regarding your health and you will receive a £20 gift voucher to thank you for taking part.

The study has been approved by UCL’s Research Ethics Committee and its findings will be used to inform decisions about how remote health care appointments are organised in the future.
