An online doctor who is available to see you at a time that suits you.
This new service enables you to have a virtual face-to-face consultation with a practising, qualified GP in the comfort of your own home, or at work, at a time that is convenient for you. The service is available between 8.00am and 10.00pm, 7 days a week.
The service has been designed to be secure, confidential and easy to use; all you need is an email address, a broadband internet connection, and a computer/laptop with a webcam, situated near to your telephone/mobile phone.
For example, you may have pain in your shoulder and difficulty moving your arm properly. This service will help the doctor to see exactly where the pain is and how it restricts your movements. Or you may have abdominal pain – again, you can point to exactly where the pain is, thus helping the doctor to diagnose your problem and advise you accordingly.
