The software and hardware specifications for telehealth will vary depending on individual circumstances. However, as a guideline for a telehealth video appointment you will need the following:
- a device to conduct the consultation, which may be a computer or tablet. This device will need a webcam and microphone
- speakers (or headphones)

The webcam, if separate to the device, should be positioned at the top of the screen, so that eye contact can be maintained.
