Welcome to Video Consultations – making appointments easier for you

If you have used this service before, please click on the specialty you require, if new, please see the video and information below.

List of all services:

Attend Anywhere is a secure web-based video platform that allows you to have a consultation from your home or own private space.

It makes life easier for you by helping you reduce the need to travel to hospital for appointments, saving you money and time.

It is for patients with pre-arranged appointment times only. Patients due for appointments that could done by video consultation will be invited to do so.

You can use Attend Anywhere on a PC, Mac or an iOS/Android device, using a Google Chrome (for PC/Mac/all mobile devices)/Apple Safari (for Macs and iOS devices) browser. Attend Anywhere will not work on Internet Explorer. Download Google Chrome or Apple Safari for free. For more information about technical requirements, please click here.

Five minutes before your appointment time, click on the relevant service below. You will be taken through a series of steps to ensure that your equipment is set up correctly. Once the steps have been completed, you will be prompted to enter your name and telephone number and accept the terms and conditions. This information is not stored beyond the length of the video call.

Once these steps have been followed, click on the 'Start Call' button and you will enter the waiting room until your consultation begins. You will see yourself on the video and hear music. The waiting room is private and you will not see other patients.

When the consultation is ready to begin, your image will shrink and move to the corner of the screen and you will see your clinician. The video call is free (except your internet usage charge) and data is not used whilst you are in the waiting room.
