Your GP KNOWS you. You have built trust and confidence in your GP. Your GP has your medical records, understands your medical history, medications, and in many cases, is also the GP for your family dependants. This Application enables you to book a video consultation for yourself, or a dependant, such as a young son or daughter. You book the appointment right into your GP’s schedule at a time convenient to you. At the right time, you are alerted of the upcoming appointment. Your GP joins your Video Consultation and provides a professional, caring and online diagnosis and as applicable advises on follow-up actions, medication or prescription. The App provides easy to use, secure and effective video technology, and is only available for video consultations with YOUR GP.
