It’s now possible to avail of online consultations with a GP, and order repeat prescriptions for a wide range of conditions at boots.ie/online-doctor …
From this week access to online consultations with a GP, and repeat prescription ordering is available through Boots. The service offers a quick and easy way to book an online consultation with a doctor or order a repeat prescription, making it easier to access healthcare services from the comfort and safety of your own home.
The Online Doctor Service provides GP-led appointments for non-emergency medical issues where a physical check-up may not be necessary. Customers can also use the service to order a repeat prescription for a range of health conditions including acne, asthma, contraceptive pill and patch, cystitis, erectile dysfunction, hair loss, high cholesterol, IBS, malaria prevention, period delay, premature ejaculation, smoking cessation, strep throat infections, thrush treatment and weight loss.
Commenting on the launch of the Boots Ireland Online Doctor Service, Caoimhe McAuley, Director of Pharmacy and Superintendent Pharmacist, Boots Ireland said: “The online Doctor Service at Boots means patients can consult with a GP, access trusted advice and receive a prescription if required, which can be dispensed at any of our nationwide pharmacies. While we continue to live with COVID-19, the ability to access a GP from the comfort of your own home has additional benefits in terms of infection prevention and control where it may be preferable not to attend for an in-person GP appointment. We hope that this service offers greater convenience for our customers.”
The service is priced at €35 for a GP video consultation and €25 for a repeat prescription. As this Online Doctor service is provided by a third party, the cost of dispensed medication is in addition to the cost of the consultation and any prescription issued by the GP. For more information and to avail of online consultations, access GP-led medical advice and referrals and order your prescriptions visit boots.ie/online-doctor.
