Skype and Video Consultations

Do you have Skype? You can now use Skype to contact your doctor!

Even if you don’t have Skype, you can request a video consultation with your GP. We use software called Accurx and you can watch this video to explain how this works here.

Cavendish Health Centre ran a successful pilot in 2014 which allowed patients to contact their GP via Skype. Now that the pilot has ended, we are still offering appointments via Skype.

To book a Skype appointment please telephone us on 0207 487 5244 or pop in and see our reception team. Please ensure you give the receptionist your Skype address as well as your telephone number.

Please ensure you read our brief guidance here before you book.

Note: as with all information transmitted across the internet, the security of Skype isn’t 100%.  If you have any concerns about this, then you should use another type of appointment.  For more information please go to
