As part of the national outpatient improvement plan, United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust are using video consultation as an alternative to face to face appointments.
Video consultation appointments offer another way to consult with you either in your home or at any other appropriate location, with the aim to reduce your travel, time and the associated expense. There is also the facility to invite a family member/friend/carer or where required Interpreter to join the video consultation.
Attend Anywhere is a secure NHS video call service for patients with pre-arranged appointment times only. You can access Attend Anywhere on a PC/Mac or an iOS/Android device To take part in an video consultation your computer/laptop/tablet/smart phone will need to have Google Chrome or Safari installed on it. Attend Anywhere will not work on Internet Explorer.
If you have agreed to attend a video consultation appointment, we will schedule your appointment as normal and send you details of the appointment date and time. Once the consultation is complete, you will be directed to an online survey. We would appreciate your feedback as this will help us to improve our service.

If this is the first time you are attending a video consultation, we recommend you check and test your equipment in advance. You can practice joining the virtual waiting room at any time.
Once signed in, please wait for the clinician to greet you. Occasionally there might be a short delay and your appointment might not run at the planned time. This might be because the clinician needs to spend a little longer with another patient.
Below is a list of speciality clinics with a link to their waiting rooms:
