It’s also fun and good to interact with younger Dr's on call."
“Telestroke is very helpful and reassuring to both patients & assessing registrar [akin to ‘resident’ in US] to ensure the best treatment is given to patients”; “It has helped with the ED/stroke relationship”; “…it makes us feel part of the world.
