Since March 2020, over 250,000 video consultations have taken place between patients and clinicians in Wales.
An accelerated national roll-out of the NHS Wales Video Consulting Service using a product called Attend Anywhere has been successfully delivered as part of Welsh Government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Welsh Government, in partnership with Technology Enabled Care (TEC) Cymru and partners developed the Video Consultation service as a means to offer healthcare services a safe and secure way to see patients via a video appointment.
These allow you to see your doctor virtually from the comfort of your home or any other convenient location, saving you from needing to travel. The video platform is confidential and secure, and easy to use. No information is stored on the system.
For further details including a statement from Eluned Morgan, Welsh Government Minister for Health & Social Services please see the link to the Digital Health Wales’ announcement.
Video Consultations are now being offered across various services in Aneurin Bevan University Health Board. For details, please visit our Video Consultations page.
