At KDH we have the capacity to offer telemedicine services so patients do not have to drive a long distance to see a specialist. Telemedicine is the use of telecommunication and information technologies to provide healthcare at a distance. If you are referred to a specialist whose office is a long way from your home, you may be able to see your specialist in subsequent visits through telemedicine at a centre close to your home. With telemedicine at KDH you can see and speak with your specialist via a TV screen in a private space.
