If you find it difficult to get an appointment with an NHS GP during the evening and outside surgery hours, you’ll be glad Medelinked features Chat To A Doctor.
Included in your annual subscription, Chat to a Doctor is an online health service that allows you to remotely contact UK-based GMC-registered NHS practising GPs, with guaranteed access 24/7, 365-days-a-year from anywhere in the world.
Chat To A Doctor
Helping to reduce individual worry and work absence though sickness, the doctors can diagnose, deliver advice, provide private prescriptions for medication delivered to home or place of work and have virtual face-to-face consultations with Medelinked subscribers using state-of-the-art technology.
Using Chat To A Doctor you can ask almost anything a patient would typically ask an NHS GP in a face-to-face consultation but now you can do it from the comfort of your own home.
Chat To A Doctor can provide: sensitive and confidential clinical advice; diagnosis of symptoms and enable discussion of possible treatments for common ailments; provide explanations of diagnosis or treatment you may have been prescribed; clarify information on media medical ‘scare stories’; discuss side-effects of any medication being taken and confirm inoculations needed when travelling abroad and other health precautions relevant to the caller’s personal medical history.
Chat to Doctor complements your Medelinked account where you can build a health profile and upload and share health and wellness information with your existing trusted health providers as well as being able to manage your health with the latest tools and apps.
Once connected, you can get also health advice in real time and chat instantly to these health providers by voice, text, email and video – all from inside the secure Medelinked account.
