During Your Video Consultation


Tips for a Good Video Consultation Session 

  1. Avoid typing on your keyboard (if you are using a PC or laptop), turn off all music/sounds, and use a room with no or minimal background noise. Using a headphone or earpiece with a microphone with your PC/laptop or tablet/smartphone will be even better. 
  2. If you cannot hear your healthcare provider clearly, check whether your PC/laptop/tablet/smartphone (or headphone/earpiece) volume is too low. 
  3. Ensure that you are in a room with good lighting, especially on your face. Ensure that you are not under a shadow or having any lights shining from behind you (i.e. no backlighting). If your room is dark, it is recommended to use a lamp to light up your face (but not shining into your eyes). 
  4. If you are using a tablet/smartphone for the Video Consultation session, it is recommended to use a stand to hold it up, or prop it up with something, so that your hands are free. 
  5. If a stable Wi-Fi connection is available (e.g. using your home Wi-Fi), it may be better than using 4G connection. It also helps to conserve your mobile data subscription.
  6. Find a comfortable and private space with no distractions
  7. No recording is allowed (eg. screenshorts, photo, video or audio recording)
