About Medical Solutions

Medical Solutions is the leading private provider of telephone and video-based GP consultations in the UK and Republic of Ireland. Operating since 1998 we have an experienced team of clinical and operational staff that provide stability, security and scale to our virtual clinic. Our GPs provide remote consultations to members of large insurers and corporate clients, covering 4 million patients.

The Role of Virtual Consultations – a time for change

Covid-19 is a catalyst moment for primary care. On a scale never seen before, patients need remote clinical support. As a consequence, both patients and clinicians are becoming increasingly comfortable with remote consultations and enjoying the benefits they offer. It is therefore realistic to expect that this significant cultural change in accessing primary care is likely to persevere beyond the pandemic. Medical Solutions GPs benefit from the training, feedback and support to thrive during this time of change.

The role of our GPs is to provide clinical advice, reassurance and where appropriate, diagnosis and offer treatment options including prescriptions to patients by phone or video consultation. Following IMC best practice guidelines, our GPs consult with patients on an episodic basis across a broad spectrum of demographics and conditions from acute to chronic. Our top 5 clinical categories are dermatology, gastroenterology, ENT, MSK and urology.

Support

Our GPs all receive online training in remote consultations and are supported by our clinical governance board and 24/7 customer service and administration teams. Our Chief Medical Officer, Dr Chris Morris is on hand to support and guide GPs as necessary, with over 16 years training GPs, Chris is experienced and passionate about advancing effective patient care.
