Attend Anywhere - Video consultations

We have recently introduced new software to support virtual consultations at our Minor Injury Units (MIU). Where appropriate, you can now attend your consultation online via a video call.

Video calling is as convenient as a phone call, with the added value of face-to-face communication. It can save you time and money, and brings your care closer to home

Attend Anywhere® is a website used to connect clinicians and patients using video. You will need to have access to a smartphone or computer with a webcam, and have a good internet connection to use this system. 

There is no need to create an account and none of the information you enter is stored.

FAQs

What do I need to make a video call?

  • A good connection to the internet - If you can watch a video online (e.g.YouTube) you can make a video call.

  • A private, well-lit area where you will not be disturbed during the consultation

  • One of these:

    • Google Chrome web browser on a desktop or laptop, or on an Android tablet or smartphone
    • Safari web browser on an Apple iMac, MacBook, iPad, or iPhone
  • Web-camera, speakers and microphone already built into laptops or mobile devices

Is it secure?

Video calls are secure; your privacy is protected. You have your own private video room that only authorised clinicians can enter.

How much internet data will I use?

You don’t use any data while waiting for a clinician to join you. A video call uses a similar amount of data to Skype® or FaceTime®.

How much does a video call cost?

The video call is free (except for your internet usage). Where possible, try to connect to a home or work Wi-Fi network to avoid using your mobile data allowance.
