University of Leeds' innovation hub Nexus accelerates work on 'virtual clinic' app for NHS following coronavirus crisis.

A team of eight medical students from the School of Medicine at Leeds have been recruited by Itecho Health to help fast track plans to develop of virtual clinic for the NHS. 

Dr Adrian Brown of Itecho Health said: “The COVID-19 public health crisis has given that objective an even greater focus. Outpatient visits have stopped. Doctors are increasingly having telephone consultations with their patients and there is growing concern that the most vulnerable patients are avoiding going to hospital for vital check-ups and treatment.”
