How does the Asda Online Doctor service work?
Patients select their chosen service or treatment on Onlinedoctor.Asda.com/uk
To request a prescription or a test kit, patients simply fill in a short questionnaire about their health.
An experienced doctor reviews the questionnaire and gets back to patients within 24 hours.
If the doctor approves and prescribes a treatment, the Asda Online Doctor team posts it to the patient’s home for free.
Patients can also Click & Collect from their chosen Asda Pharmacy.
All doctors are registered with the General Medical Council (GMC) and specialists in their field.
Asda Online Doctor provides treatments across 28 conditions including high blood pressure, acne, cold sores, malaria, hair loss, erectile dysfunction and cystitis. Services cover general health, women’s health, men’s health, sexual health and chronic health. Further information can be found at https://onlinedoctor.Asda.com/uk/
Dr Kathryn Basford from online doctor ZAVA comments: “Patients should have a way to access medical care that fits with their lives. Not only is it more convenient for them, it also prevents them from delaying seeking care in the first place. And this is really important.”
