It is often difficult for a full and clear assessment to be done for children under the age of 2 years, and so a face to face consult at the clinic is more appropriate.
Teleconsultation for seniors are conducted with a high margin of safety. It is best that an accompanying member of the family should be in attendance to assist in video clarity and communication. Assessment of the elderly may be more difficult given comorbidities and it may be more appropriate for face to face consults of the elderly to occur at the clinic.
