Near Me video consulting has been used in NHS Highland secondary care for some time now. In light of the current Coronavirus / Covid19 pandemic this service has now been made available to patients and clinicians in General Practice. This can be used to reduce the risk of exposure to coronavirus by enabling both patients and clinicians to consult while in isolation.
