Attending your consultation from anywhere
We are offering video consultations to some patients who have been identified by their healthcare professional as someone who may be suitable for this type of appointment.
Video consultations allow patients to consult with their clinician remotely through a video feed on their devices, including phones, tablets, laptops and desktop computers. The technology offers greater choice and flexibility for patients for some of their appointments and reduces the need to travel.

After your consultation
As this is relatively new way of conducting appointments, you may be redirected to a short survey asking about your experience using video consultations. Please fill this out if possible as it provides valuable feedback to improve your experience using Attend Anywhere. Please use the opportunity to tell us about things that worked well for you and areas where we could improve the experience for other patients.
