When you get unusual aches and pains, or you think you’re developing a cough that seems to have come from nowhere, it can be worrying without the GP access you’re familiar with. Luckily, technology can step in and help you out with doctor's appointments over video calls and online private prescriptions. What would we do without it?
Here’s the low-down on Simplyhealth’s 24/7 access to video GP appointments.
Finer details around Simplyhealth's Video GP, including reviews, benefits of the service, and how you could get seen today.
Register on the SimplyConsult app using your Simplyhealth details.
Log in, select Health Services, then Video GP. Follow the steps to choose a day and time to suit you.
You’ll receive a text reminder 15 minutes before your appointment, and a 30-second countdown. To start your appointment, simply log into the app. When the ‘join’ button turns purple, tap it to begin.
After your appointment, you can view your GP’s notes in the SimplyConsult app.
The GP service can arrange for a prescription slip to be sent to you so you can collect their prescription at a pharmacist. The great thing about this is there’s no cost for this service!
* If the same GP is not available within seven days, you’ll be directed to other available GPs.
** For a prescription to be delivered the next working day, the prescription needs to be raised before 3pm on a weekday and before 12pm on a Saturday.
