My WebDoctor's online service

Dr Webberley Kevin Dr Webberley Kevin

A British GP, and frequent visitor to the Costa Del Sol, has set up an entrepreneurial online doctor service that can at last give thousands of people living in Spain peace of mind for their healthcare. With everyday non-emergency health needs in mind, My Web Doctor will give you the reassurance of having a UK doctor at your fingertips – literally - right on the end of your mobile phone, tablet or computer.

Mirroring the NHS in its ease of access and high medical standards, Dr Helen Webberley aims to provide quality routine healthcare at a price that will suit all pockets. For only £12.99 per month, the service allows you unlimited access to advice from a GMC-registered UK GP.

www.MyWebDoctor.co.uk allows its members to email their query or request a telephone call to discuss your problem in person. If medicines are needed then the price of the private prescription is included in the subscription fee, and the British pharmacy can send out your medication to be delivered to your Spanish address. The actual price of the medication and postage is payable to the chemist, but with a box of penicillin priced at about £1, this makes it cheaper than the NHS prescription charge!

If you need any blood tests or swabs, then these can be sent out in home testing kits. The kit contains a swab or a finger-prick blood test that can be done by you at home and sent back to the UK laboratory for testing.

 ‘As well as treating routine minor illness, this is really going to open up options for those people who are on regular medication,’ says Dr Webberley. ‘For example those people on blood pressure or diabetic tablets can now have six months of their medication sent to them in the post for a very reasonable price, and can even have blood tests to make sure they are being monitored properly.’

Although not everything can be dealt with remotely, it is surprising how much can be.  If people are worried about skin rashes or lumps or bumps, they can upload photos for the doctor to review. If a clinical examination is necessary then Dr Webberley and her team can advise people to have a face to face visit with a doctor, but even this is useful advice for those wondering whether to book an actual appointment with a doctor in Spain.

Dr Webberley acknowledges that this is not an emergency service, and people with medical emergencies should call 061 as usual. However, this is going to bring NHS quality healthcare to you wherever you may be.
