Online pharmacy and healthcare specialists Treated.com are offering a video call service with their doctors for just £1. The Treated Live service allows patients to ask for advice around the COVID-19 virus, scheduling appointments at a time that suits them, without having to leave their homes.
In order to secure a consultation for just one pound, visit Treated.com/LIVE and use code CORONA at the check out.
The £1 cost per patient will be donated to the Center for Disaster Philanthropy’s COVID-19 Response Fund. The fund is focusing on working with nonprofit organisations working in areas with a high number of affected individuals as well as working with the most vulnerable populations to help to build their capacity for response.
Treated.com are hoping that this service will help to reduce the strain currently placed on NHS and the NHS 111 helpline as the virus continues to spread. The consultation call will last 10 minutes, and patients can enquire about symptoms they are currently experiencing or someone they are close to. Treated.com’s team of clinicians will be able to offer sound advice on their situation.
Speaking of the service, Dr Daniel Atkinson, GP Clinical Lead for Treated.com said, “The £1 video consultations are our way to do our bit in light of the rising concerns around the Coronavirus pandemic. It’s important for patients to get the right advice during this time, and the pressure on the NHS is overwhelming. Consultations can be booked at a time that is convenient for the patient, with access to one of our clinical staff to talk through any worries they have.”
In addition to the consultation service, Treated.com have produced a video and blog post to provide further information around COVID-19, answering some common questions people are asking at the moment. Treated.com are keen to ensure people are getting the right information at such a difficult time.
