Benefits of NHS Near Me include:
- reduced travel;
- reduced time away from home/work/school;
- making it easier to have someone with you for support at your appointment who would not necessarily have been able to travel.
NHS Near Me uses the secure video consulting system Attend Anywhere, which has been approved as private and confidential by NHS Scotland. Near Me calls are not recorded and are not permitted to be recorded.
The Community Falls Prevention Programme and the Osteoporosis service are now offering NHS Near Me appointments to those who are referred to the service.
