What is it?​​​

Tele-DERM enables primary care doctors in an e-consultation portal to discuss skin care cases and treatment options with NSC dermatologists in a convenient and prompt manner. It allows pre-triaged patients to receive dermatological care at NHG Polyclinics sooner and reduces the need for additional follow-up appointments at NSC.
