Even though the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic seems to have passed, we have not returned to only doing face-to-face appointments. Our plan is to alternate clinic appointments between face-to-face and video appointments every 3 months. Some educational sessions or other reviews may also take place over a video call.
Near Me is the name of the NHS's video calling system. If you're familiar with some of the other platforms around, like Zoom or Teams, it's very similar. It is completely secure and another advantage is that you don't need to download any apps or other software to use it. As long as you have either Safari, Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge, you can use it.
Instructions for using Near Me are now available in a number of languages (below). The link to enter our Waiting Room can be found within the leaflet and also here: https://nhsattend.vc/NHSGGCCYPDS. We recommend you copy and paste it to your browser as even one incorrect character will mean you end up somewhere else!
