We are now offering some of our outpatient appointments via video consultation. Your clinician will tell you whether this option is suitable for you.
We recognise that it isn't always easy or convenient to come to hospital for an appointment, and that some people need to attend several times as part of their care.
In appropriate instances, a video consultation from your home or workplace may work better for you. Feedback shows that many patients prefer it.
Video consultations, using Attend Anywhere, are offered when we can achieve as much during an online appointment as we would face to face, or when the risk to patients is far higher by attending in person, such as at present with Covid-19.
If you have a face-to-face consultation booked but believe you would benefit from a video appointment instead, please speak to your clinicians.
There are many reasons why one may not be appropriate, such as if you need to undergo a procedure or a physical examination.
How to use Attend Anywhere
If you are taking part in a video consultation for the first time visit the NHS Attend Anywhere website to see what you need, tips for your video appointment, how to test your equipment and troubleshooting advice.
Once the consultation is complete, you will be directed to an online survey. We would appreciate any feedback.
