St George Hospital is using PEXIP, a secure, flexible platform. There are four steps to connecting:
- 1. Copy the link we email you and please ONLY open the link with Google Chrome.
It will work with some other browsers but is much less reliable.
- 2. Allow access to microphone and camera when requested
- 3. Enter your name
- 4. Click "Join" – there is no need to enter a pin
To join the video conference you will need to "dial in" using the PEXIP Infinity Bridge app. There are 4 steps:
Step 1: When you first open the PEXIP app, enter your name and press "OK"
Step 2: To join your appointment, click the video button
Step 3: Type the link we emailed to you into the "Search to call" bar.
The correct link will look similar to this: email@example.com
Step 4: Click the grey "video" button and that’s it! Please give permission for the app to access your camera and microphone so we can see and hear you.
If we are running late we apologise in advance. Please check your email regularly and we will send you the link soon as possible, or if you are on hold in the video waiting room we appreciate your patience.
If you are having trouble accessing the Pexip video conference or dialing into a multidisciplinary clinic please wait and we will call your backup phone number when we are ready for the appointment.
