We want to make the process as safe and convenient for people as possible; so that patients can rest assured that they get real branded medicines online, prescribed by UK registered doctors and checked by UK pharmacists.
UK (PRWEB UK) 18 May 2012
A new online doctor consultation service has been launched by Prescription2home with full approval of the Care Quality Commission. The new online service has been developed in response to the pressure on NHS budgets making it more difficult for patients to get some branded medicines from their GP. Prescription2home allows patients to have a safe and convenient online consultation with a UK registered Doctor. Following the Doctor’s approval, the prescription is handled by a UK registered Pharmacy and delivered next day to the patient’s home or office. The online consultation service is available for health conditions such as weight loss, erectile dysfunction, smoking cessation, chlamydia and genital warts.
With increasing pressure on the NHS and other healthcare budget squeezes, managers are looking to reduce expenditure on what are considered non-essential medicines. As an example, weight loss medication is increasingly restricted to extremely obese patients, even though many less overweight patients would benefit from such medicines. GPs are also under increasing pressure to prescribe generic non-branded medication and older lower cost medicines for items such as the contraceptive pill, where there have been real reductions in side-effects achieved by more modern pills over recent years. Evidence suggests that many patients would pay extra for improved medicines with fewer side effects, but the NHS does not offer this.
Online healthcare provider Prescription2Home has recently launched a new website allowing patients to safely access medicines safely. Medicines for conditions such as erectile dysfunction, hair loss and obesity are increasingly subject to severity thresholds in an attempt to reduce overall costs, leaving patients with a difficult battle to get the medicines that would help them. The new service has been registered with the Care Quality Commission and will allow patients to have a convenient online consultation with UK registered doctors, safe in the knowledge that any medicine requested will be despatched the same day from a UK-based pharmacy, arriving discretely packaged by courier the following day.
One of Prescription2Home's medical team Dr Paul Conley said, "It's all very well saying to patients that you can't get these medicines on the NHS, but where do people go to get them? We want to make the process as safe and convenient for people as possible; so that patients can rest assured that they get real branded medicines online, prescribed by UK registered doctors and checked by UK based pharmacists”.
The service will offer consultations for conditions such as weight loss, erectile dysfunction, hair loss, stop smoking, travel medicine, morning after pill and contraception.
