Contactless Virtual Consent to Surgery is the New Norm - Stephen Lake, Consultant Surgeon at Worcestershire Acute NHS Trust

Coronavirus has had a major impact not only on the way technology is being accelerated in healthcare but how attitudes have changed in terms of how patients and their families embrace it.

In this interview, Corrie Williams of Elemental TV talks to Mr Stephen Lake, consultant surgeon at Worcestershire Acute NHS Trust, about the surgical consent to treatment process and in what ways this has changed during the pandemic. He explains how his Trust is using eConsent through video conferencing to enable remote consultations with patients and contactless virtual consent, and how this is likely to be the new normal post COVID-19.
