FaceTime (for iPhone/iPad/Apple Computers)

FaceTime is an application that is automatically downloaded in to your Apple/IPhone hard drive. It works as a normal call but allows you to make/receive a phone call with 2-way video capability. There is no extra charge on your phone bill to use this service.

All you need to do is make sure your FaceTime application is turned on. To do this please follow the instructions below:

  • On your IPhone device click on ‘Settings’. This will be a button that looks like a clockwork part.
  • Once in settings scroll down until you see ‘Facetime’.
  • Click on ‘Facetime’ and make sure you have it set to receive FaceTime calls. If your FaceTime app is turned on the circle beside Facetime will be in the right hand position with a green background. Under that you will also see ‘People can contact you on all your devices with FaceTime using your phone number or email address’.
  • If your FaceTime is not set to ‘ON’ the circle beside it will be in the left hand position with a grey background. To turn it on you just need to click the circle next to FaceTime and this will put the circle to the right hand side with the green background.
  • Now your provider is able to contact you via FaceTime! When they call you your phone will let you know that they are contacting you via FaceTime and all you have to do is accept the call.
Pocket Patient (Patient Portal) – for Apple/iPhone/Android devices
