LloydsPharmacy has today (August 25) launched a VideoGP app that provides access to an experienced GP seven days a week, in just 30 minutes.

The service operates through an app from LloydsPharmacy, which is available from the Apple App Store and Google Play.

Dr Kieran Seyan, chief medical officer at LloydsPharmacy Online Doctor, said: “At LloydsPharmacy, we’ve been working hard to develop a platform that gives patients access to healthcare at their convenience.

With Primary Care services under immense pressure right now due to the pandemic, we’re eager to help and support the NHS by providing online alternatives to attending a local GP practice or clinic.

“Our VideoGP app provides a digital solution that connects patients with healthcare professionals, whilst ensuring continuing safe, quality care for patients.”

GPs are available through the app from 8am to 8pm and payment options for the service are flexible. Patients can pay for one-off appointments or through low-cost monthly and annual subscriptions. Prices include medication, next-day delivery, referral letters, and fit notes if required.

Kyle Rowe, chief marketing and digital officer at McKesson UK, parent company to LloydsPharmacy Online Doctor, said: “The pandemic has undoubtedly accelerated the adoption of digital technology and empowered more people to look after their health online, and it’s because of this that we have significantly invested in bringing this proposition to market.”
