Video Consults (Near Me)

About Video Consults

Monifieth Medical Practice is using Near Me, a video consulting service, that enables you to have health care appointments from home or wherever is convenient. All you need is a device for making video calls like a smartphone and an internet connection.

Near Me is a secure form of video consulting approved for use by the Scottish Government and NHS Scotland.

Starting your Video Consultation

When a GP or Advanced Nurse Practitioner has asked to consult with you via a video (sometimes called a Near Me call), they will give you a date and time to connect.

Five minutes before the prescribed time, go to and follow the on screen guidance.

Once you complete your details and continue you will be placed in a virtual waiting area. The doctor or nurse will connect ASAP. Please be patient.

Once connected, follow the instructions of your doctor or nurse.
