Share Article

In an attempt to open up discussion for modern day health etiquette and bring private healthcare closer to the general public, the online clinic 121doc has chosen an unusual outlet to promote an alternative route to treatment at just a click away.

121doc is hoping to enlighten UK adults on its online medical consultation model by using a visual guide that explains, in 6 simple steps, how to obtain prescription medication via the internet safely.

Put simply, the piece of illustrated promotional material is intended to make people warm to the fact that prescription medicine can be reorderd online safely.

Following the illustrated guide, patients can observe how to order a repeat prescription and receive genuine branded medicine from a licensed pharmacy with speed and discretion.

Nowadays getting a doctor’s appointment and visiting the pharmacy for a prescription are chores that can not always be accommodated into a busy schedule.

121doc admits an online consultation model will not replace the traditional face-to-face doctor's appointment, but rather come to the aid of patients that choose not to visit their local GP for treatment.

In a recent article entitled “Embarrassment is one reason why men don’t see the doctor,” Joel Sherman, a urologist from New York, shines a light on what factors the public face when seeking professional medical advice:

“Barriers to seeking help can be divided into personal and systemic. The systemic factors affect both men and women equally, especially nowadays when most women work similar hours to men.

“Specific issues included long waits for appointments and long waits in the waiting room. A common issue more embarrassing to men is being asked the reason for the appointment at the front desk. This occurs because nearly all receptionists are women.” 1

The visual guide is the first in a new series of 121doc infographics that focus on improving health awareness. Further topics are said to cover understanding impotence and choosing the right contraceptive pill.

To find out more about common, embarrassing health topics, such as impotence, hair loss, weight management and premature ejaculation or to obtain 24-hour prescription treatment, visit 121doc today.
