We launched our instant call feature in Singapore one month ago. Instant call allows anyone to consult a GP without leaving home. There's been a lot of interest and we've received many questions! The intention of this blog post is to answer some of the most common questions about telemedicine services and virtual care in Singapore that you've thrown our way."How to consult doctor?"
This whole process is identical to the in-person consultations you are used to. The doctors are trained to practise telemedicine and are licensed by the Singapore Medical Council. Doctors are only allowed to issue MCs and medication when they believe the patient is sick, and is therefore in need of treatment. These ethical guidelines are enforced by the Singapore Medical Council– applicable to all doctors whether they perform their consultation in-person or online.
- If appropriate, the doctor writes you a prescription as a result of your consultation.
- You review the prescription and agree to additional costs of the medication and delivery fee.
- A courier delivers the prescription medication directly to your door within a few hours.
