Video medical examinations for whiplash cases will continue to be allowed, despite the UK continuing to emerge slowly out of lockdown.

In March 2020, MedCo, the organisation overseeing diagnosis of soft tissue injury, relaxed its rules around online appointments as a temporary measure at the height of the lockdown caused by the coronavirus crisis.

Restrictions on daily life have eased somewhat since then, but MedCo has confirmed that the ban on remote examinations will remain suspended “until further notice”.

MedCo updated its guidelines on remote medical examinations on 3 July.
