Telephone and Video Consultation
When needed, the Tilsworth Clinic can help you from a distance. As highly trained healthcare professional, we will apply our clinical judgement to decide how and when telephone and video consultations should be used to best support our patient’s care.
These types of consultations will be considered and conducted in the same manner as our in-clinic consultations. While they provide a different experience, these virtual appointments offer a valuable opportunity for the patient to ask questions and for us to check on our patient’s progress.
If a telephone or video consultation does not allows us to make relevant clinical observations/examinations and provide clinically-based advice, then we will refer patients for a face to face consultation (unless they are required to self-isolate).
What happens during a virtual consultation
- You will receive an online link to join for your online consultation.
- We will discuss your symptoms and problems, assess you by asking you to perform specific movements and explain your working diagnosis.
- You will receive a detailed exercise programme and manual therapy techniques tailored to your needs via email
- The time spent on the call will be between 15-30min as judged appropriate.
Technology – Helping you prepare for your appointment
In order to carry out our virtual appointments, we use encrypted services via our clinic Software “Cliniko“.
- Our osteopaths will conduct the consultation in a well-lit private room.
- We also recommend that our patients set up for their osteopathy appointments in a similar well-lit and quiet environment. Additionally, patients must have a good mobile/broadband service to ensure the best connection.
- We will not record our sessions.
- You may find that using headphones can reduce the risk of sound feedback.
- If you experience technical difficulties, particularly if you cannot hear us, then we will suggest that the consultation is re-started or closed and re-scheduled.

Please note: it is professionally inappropriate for us to stipulate that osteopathy can “treat” specific conditions, which is why we don’t list them on our website. The principle of osteopathy, is to support patients through to a place of good health, such that dis-ease and illness can be improved. This is why we believe in giving more time to our patients and listening and assessing carefully. And ensuring a thorough treatment plan is agreed that works long term.
