This practice offers NHS Near Me video appointments, powered by the Attend Anywhere system.
NHS Near Me Information
NHS Near Me is a video consulting service which allows patients to attend their appointment from the comfort of their own home or wherever is convenient, using their own computer, smartphone or tablet device.
To use this service you must have a booked video appointment with the practice. Your clinician or booking staff will be able to advise you whether a video appointment is suitable for you.
How to make a Near Me call
All video calls must be pre arranged with the surgery. If you have spoken to a GP, Nurse or member of reception you will be told when to log in to the website to start your video consultation.
Once a time has been agreed open the Chrome or Safari browser. Copy the website address – https://nhsattend.vc/broughtyferryhc On your service’s website you should see a “start video call” button - click this button.
The system checks you have everything in place to make a Near Me call. All calls involve an internet check. The system checks you have a speaker, microphone and video: on some devices this is automated, or you may be asked to click “continue” or “yes”. If asked, allow access to your microphone and video
Enter your details: name, date of birth and the phone number where you can be reached during the call. Tick the small box to agree the terms and conditions. Your service will then give you some information: please read this and press “start call” again to continue.
You will then sit in a virtual waiting room until your call is picked up by the GP or Nurse.
