How does it work?
An online consultation can be done from wherever you are. Virtual consultations are done by either video link, or even by phone.
What service do they offer?
A virtual online doctor can help with your ongoing prescriptions for any regular meds you take. One of the most common things they do is offer management of long term health conditions. However, they can also assess mental health issues such as depression or anxiety, and other issues like skin complaints etc. A virtual online doctor can also give diagnoses for new issues that do not need a physical examination.
What’s the advantage for me?
Appointments are at time that suits you, and can include early evening and the weekend. There is no travelling to the medical centre or sitting in their waiting room required. You can easily slot an appointment at work as long as you have somewhere private to sit. And no more having to drag the kids along as well!
The more information you provide at your appointment the better. You may be asked to get a blood test or get your blood pressure taken before your appointment. Or, if you have a rash, you may wish to send a photo through beforehand.
