New Video Consultation Programme Launch

Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport, Shona Robison MSP,  today launched a programme piloting the use of web-based video consultation for healthcare appointments.

The Attend Anywhere programme will initially be trialled for a small range of services in remote areas of Scotland including Speech and Language Therapy and Pharmacy prescription reviews.

Professor George Crooks, Medical Director, NHS 24, said: “Attend Anywhere realises Scotland’s digital ambition to enable people to get the care they need from their healthcare provider in a way that suits them.  The project forms part of an exciting collaboration between NHS Scotland’s Technology Enabled Care Programme and Healthdirect Australia to improve citizen access to health and care via modern digital technologies”

Attend Anywhere is one of a number of Technology Enabled Care (TEC) programmes supported by NHS 24 Scottish Centre for Telehealth and Telecare. Further details of this  and other TEC programmes can be found on the website.

Today’s launch at Dynamic Earth, Edinburgh provided a demonstration of the technology via a ‘mock appointment’ and an opportunity to watch presentations and a short video from the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne explaining how clinicians at RCH provide video call access to specialist appointments across 50-60 clinics and outreach services.
The following video shows how the Attend Anywhere technology has been working in Australia:
