Thread: Near Me or Dear Me service

  1. #1

    Default Near Me or Dear Me service

    Has anyone in Caithness had success in getting an NHS Near Me appointment or is the service mainly reserved for those who live in Inverness ?

    Yes, one about a year ago at the hospital & 2 at home. Very successful

    Never heard of it, what is it?

    Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.

    It is an NHS video conferencing service which has been set up to avoid patients having to travel long distances to consultations when there is not going to be any treatment during the appointment.
    Unfortunately I have found that some NHS staff appear to be reluctant to use the service. This has, in the past resulted in the journey to Raigmore (130 miles), an hour in a waiting room, a fifteen minute consultation and the journey home, a very long day. It's enough to make you ill !

    Closer than you think


    My wife hada "Near Me" Wick which was flawless, with no delay between her speaking and consultant replying.
    Would highly recommend to anyone who does not fancy a 6 hour drive ( plus parking issues) to Raigmore
