How to set up an Attend Anywhere account in Wales
Access to the “Attend Anywhere” system in NHS Wales isn’t automatic and can only be granted by your local Health Board or employer.
You will first need to have received training on Attend Anywhere which can be booked or completed here.
Here is an example of an invitation email that is sent to new users.
The Service Administrator may have typed in an additional message for you to read:
Also displayed are the details of the designated administrator or contact email address for that Waiting Area should you have queries regarding setting up your account.
You will need to click on the link in the email to create your account.
It will take you to the ‘Create your account” screen.
A confirmation email will be sent to you detailing the name of the Waiting Area and Role(s) you have been given. Also in the email will be the Sign in page link, a link to a Resource page which takes you to the Wales Attend Anywhere website and the contact name/details for that Waiting Area should you have any further queries. The person that initiated the invitation email to you will be visible as a c.c. in the email, this person may be the same as the Waiting Area contact or someone different.

Select ‘My Profile’ to bring up your profile details.
When you set up your Attend Anywhere account it asks for your First and Last name, so these fields are already populated in your profile together with the email address you used to create your account.
You can if you wish type in a ‘Title’, e.g., Mr, Mrs, Dr etc. After making any changes select the ‘Save Changes’ button. If you change your mind and don’t wish to save the changes select the ‘Cancel’ Button instead.
You can also type in a ‘Suffix’, with any qualifications that you have, simply type in the letters in the box.
Below the’ Suffix’ box is a ‘Waiting Area Alias’ box. If you do not wish to be known as your full name and title you can fill in the Waiting Area Alias box with something else. Whatever you put in this box will override the information in the other 4 boxes, just select the green ‘Save Changes‘ after you have entered in the changes.
Please note that your email address is not visible to any patient or callers while you are on a video call. It is only visible by the account holder and any administrators that have access to the Waiting Area in your Health Board or organisation.
At the bottom of the screen is a ‘Time zone’ box which will default to the current Country time zone that you are in e.g., London, Europe.
Should you wish to upload a photograph of yourself onto the profile you simply click on the black arrow next to the camera icon to upload your picture. Select ‘Upload Image’ this will allow you to upload a picture from your device. This picture will then be displayed instead of your initials on the Profile Icon. The uploaded picture will also be displayed and seen by the patient/caller if you turn your camera off during a video call.

Roles – To see the roles you have been allocated select ‘My Roles…’ from the list.
Your Roles screen is shown below.
On the left-hand side of the screen, you can see the Waiting Area(s) for which you have access. On the right-hand side are your ‘Roles’. There are four possible Roles that you can be given, each Role gives you access/ permissions to certain functions within Attend Anywhere. The four Roles are:
The Service Administrator Role is the administrator role and is given access/permissions to all administration functions within the Waiting Area. They are able to make changes to all Waiting Area's settings, e.g., set up the Waiting Area Opening times. They can also add people to the Waiting Area as staff, assign roles to the Waiting Area's staff, view calls in the Waiting Area, and suspend/restore video call access to the Waiting Area.
The Service Coordinator is a minor administrator role as they have limited permissions. A Service Coordinator can view calls to the clinic's Waiting Area, send messages to callers/patients prior to their call being answered and suspend / restore video call access to the Waiting Area.
The Service Provider can view calls in the Waiting Area and is the only role that is able to answer a video call to a Patient/Caller. They can also receive a new ‘Caller Arrival Alert' notifications from the Waiting Area telling them that someone has arrived in the Waiting Area.
The Service Referrer role allows you to move patients to different Waiting Areas. They must have the role of Service Provider where they are moving the patient from and the role of Service Referrer in the Waiting Area that they are moving the patient to.
Remove Roles myself
You are able to remove a role yourself from the ‘My Roles’ page by selecting the dustbin icon on the right-hand side next to the role you wish to remove and then select the green ‘Delete Button’
If you have selected the wrong role to be deleted simply press the red circular arrow to undo. or press the Cancel button.

Waiting Area Screen Views and Dashboards
After signing in if you are using more than one Waiting Area, all Waiting Areas will be displayed on your first screen (Please note this does not apply to Organisational Unit Administrators you will only see in this view Waiting Areas when you have been granted one of the four Waiting Area roles.)
Should you have many Waiting Areas that requires you to scroll down several rows as is the case with some Administrators you are able to quickly locate the appropriate Waiting Area by using the Filter Function above the Waiting Areas.
For example if you filtered the letter ‘d’, only Waiting Areas starting with the letter ‘d’ will be selected and shown. You can filter further by selecting the 2nd & 3rd letter of the Waiting Area name.

Understand what the Dashboard views mean
WAITING refers to the number of Patients/Callers that have clicked onto the Waiting Area link, they have filled in their details e.g., Name, Date of Birth and Telephone number, have arrived in the Waiting Area and are waiting for their Video call to be answered.
IDLE refers to the number of Patients/Callers that have arrived in the Waiting Area, these have had their call answered and have been put back into the Waiting Area and are waiting for their call to be picked up again. The wait time goes back to zero when they are put back into the Waiting Area following the previous video call.
MINUTES LONGEST WAIT
MINUTES LONGEST WAIT refers to the person that has been waiting the longest time in the Waiting Area. This isn’t necessarily from the time of the person’s appointment as the patient may have checked into the Waiting Area e.g., 10 minutes early, so this is reflected in the wait time.
BEING SEEN is the number of consultations happening at that moment in time.

If you have more than one Waiting Area select the Waiting Area that you wish to use by clicking on the appropriate Waiting Area box.
This will take you to that Waiting Area Screen or if you have just the one Waiting Area you will arrive at that specific Waiting Area screen following Signing in. We can see below that a patient is ‘Waiting’ in the Diabetes Outpatients Waiting Area.
Waiting Area Screen (Specific Waiting Area)
If you only have one Waiting Area you will go straight into that Waiting Area screen after signing in. If you wish to see a dashboard of this Waiting Area you must select the Home icon.

Caller Arrival Alerts
From the Waiting area main view screen Click onto the icon labelled “Caller arrival alerts” to activate the caller arrival alert.
This function sends a text message to any mobile number the clinician inputs informing them that someone has arrived in the Waiting Area.
The clinician enters in their mobile number into the box at the top under ‘Enter the staff phone number that will receive the text alert’. When a patient/caller arrives in the Waiting Area a text message is sent to that mobile phone from the Attend Anywhere platform informing them that a new person has arrived in the Waiting Area. There is also warning message saying ‘Do not enter a caller’s mobile phone number’. This is to remind the user that it is the staff number not the patient/callers number that is entered into this box.
The clinician can also decide how many minutes after the caller has arrived as to when the text alert is sent to the mobile phone, the example below shows that it has been set to 1 minute after the new caller has arrived in the Waiting Area. After entering the mobile telephone number and selecting the number of minutes select ‘Save’ to create the caller arrival alert. Otherwise select ‘Cancel’ to go back to the Waiting Area screen.
