The twenty first century has seen the creation of many amazing technological feats! We are focusing on the creation of online GP consultations with highly skilled GMC registered General Practitioners. In this article we look into the positive contribution this service offers and how you can benefit from it.

Via sophisticated, efficient and easy to access video consultations with experienced GMC registered GPs, you can have any medical requirement dealt with without the hassle of ever having to leave the workplace.
Society spends an average of 3,515 full working days in the office over a lifetime and even this doesn’t seem to be enough time to get everything done! We are always searching for more time in our busy, hectic jobs, therefore taking time out of work in order to visit your GP can be a hassle.
The use of online GP consultations means you are able to see a doctor without having to leave the workplace. This breakthrough will see sick days reduce and employee productivity increase when implemented throughout businesses.
A tech ena bled company has taken this a step further with the incredible invention of a Health & Wellness Kiosk. The Health & Wellness Kiosk allows you to take your heart rate, blood pressure and even more important health statistics easily and conveniently. The use of the machine within businesses will enable employees to keep on top of their health and in turn promote a healthy lifestyle within offices nationwide.
Vital health statistics gained via the Health & Wellness Kiosk can be uploaded to your profile ready for your future online consultations. Your information will be stored securely within your online profile and will only be accessed by GP’s when they require this information.
Surrounded by posters stating how germs are everywhere, instructing us to always wash our hands and cover our mouth when sneezing, the doctor’s waiting room is a hotbed for bacteria. With online GP consultations, you can access a doctor without the wait, especially in a crowded, germ filled doctors waiting room.

Prescriptions can even be delivered straight to your front door.

Have you ever been too embarrassed to see your doctor with a personal problem due to the gender of your GP?
Speaking from a female perspective, sometimes I do not like to discuss my health concerns with a male Practitioner. This is very common and is something I would love to see addressed. With most online consultations you have the freedom to choose the gender of the GP you see. No more awkward appointments!
