We have gone digital!
Near Me, powered by Attend Anywhere, is an easy to use, digital way to connect with your clinician and have your appointment.
Attend Anywhere is a secure NHS video call service for patients with pre-arranged appointment times only. If you would like to request that your existing appointment be changed to a video consultation then please contact your local CAMHS site at Aberdeen or Elgin.
The service can be accessed using a Google Chrome/Safari browser via PC, Mac or an iOS/Android device.
A couple of minutes before your appointment time, click on the image above. 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.
