This article describes a new paediatric diabetes telemedicine clinic, introduced by NZ Southern DHB paediatric endocrinologist Dr Ben Wheeler (pictured above). The clinic means that Central Otago children under Dr Wheeler’s care can consult with him via a half hour video conference in the clinic at the local hospital, rather than making a 6-8 hour round trip to see him in Dunedin.
