Can you help me manage my condition ? 12345

13 CASE STUDY 1 Reassurance is just a call away It’s the weekend and Nikki’s son is sick. She doesn’t know what to do. How serious is it? The GP’s surgery isn’t open and Nikki doesn’t know if she should take him to hospital Nikki phones the Vitality GP who advise her on the best course of action for her son and whether or not they need to go A&E.

14 The Vitality GP consultation CASE STUDY 2 The Vitality GP consultation Liz’s arm has come up in a nasty rash. It came on quite quickly and it’s itchy and sore. She wants to see a doctor quickly so they can tell her what it is, but she can’t take time off work at short notice. With Vitality GP Liz is able to book a video consultation with a GP at a time that works for her. The GP can see the extent of Liz’s rash by video and through additional photos Liz sends him, the GP can assess the rash in more detail. The GP then advises Liz on the best course of treatment and whether or not she should see a dermatologist.

15 CASE STUDY 3 The Vitality GP referral Mark has sprained his ankle and needs to see a GP. This is tricky because when he phones his GP’s surgery to book an appointment, the only available ones that week are in the middle of the day. Mark’s busy at work then and doesn’t have time to go during the middle of the day With Vitality GP Mark is able to book a video consultation with a GP within 48hrs and at a time which suits him. The GP recommends a course of physiotherapy and is able to book Mark’s first session for the next day at a clinic near his work.

17 CASE STUDY 4 The Vitality GP prescription It’s 8am and Tom has just had a video consultation with the Vitality GP before going to work. The GP has written him a prescription. Normally Tom would take his prescription into a pharmacy in his lunch break and wait while they put together the prescription – this normally takes a while as the pharmacy is always busy at lunchtime Through its partnership with LloydsPharmacy, Vitality GP sends Tom’s prescription straight to LloydsPharmacy who prepare Tom’s prescription for him to pick up during his lunch break
