When you book an STI appointment online it is quick, easy and hassle-free. Find out how it works and why on-demand healthcare is so popular in the UK.

Nobody really wants to talk about a Sexually Transmitted Infection - especially when it’s you that might have one. That awkward shuffle to your local sexual health clinic, head down, hoping you don’t bump into anyone you know? Or how about having to confess your intimate history to a family doctor who has treated everyone, from your little brother to your sweet old Nan? Err, no thanks. 

Just go online.

An STI appointment online? For real? 

YES! You could book an STI appointment online right now, in seconds, without leaving the sofa. 

If you have any concerns or suspect you might have an STI, it can be tempting to shrug it off and pretend it’s not there. Sometimes the thought of having to visit a doctor or sexual health clinic in person is enough to put off getting yourself checked out entirely. But an STI is a potentially serious but usually entirely treatable ailment that won’t go away on its own. Life is busy and it can be tough to find the time to make a face-to-face GP appointment or take time off work to visit a clinic. An online STI appointment is the best way to get peace of mind that your bits and pieces are in order, without any fuss or hassle.

How will a GP treat me online?

When booking an STI appointment online, you’ll be able to choose a date and time for your appointment. You’ll get some details about how to start your video consultation when the time comes and what to expect. During your appointment, you’ll be able to chat about your symptoms, sexual history, any concerns, fears, hopes, dreams, goals and dinner plans you have (or, maybe just stick to your symptoms…) The GP will be able to help you get a thorough diagnosis, usually by sending you a home testing kit, which you can use then send back to the address provided. Or, they’ll be able to refer you to a dedicated sexual health specialist if you need a more detailed investigation. During the appointment booking process you will get the option to upload photos so the doctor can see your condition prior to the video consultation so you don’t actually have to get your ‘bits and bobs’ out on webcam. Doctors also offer a chat only option and are happy to speak with you over the phone if you prefer. 

Remember that the doctor you’ll speak to sees hundreds of patients every week. They won’t judge you or even comment on your sexual health - they’re completely committed to helping you get better. A fully qualified and highly experienced member of our team will immediately put you at ease and talk through your concerns in a friendly and caring manner. You won’t need to speak to a receptionist to beg for a GP appointment or spend your Monday morning in the waiting room. You’ll simply click a button to book your appointment, then let the system do the rest. The beauty of booking an STI appointment online is that the entire process can take less than a day. You can register online, choose a time for your appointment, have your consultation via video chat and find out what to do next. All within the space of a few hours.

Technology is changing the face of healthcare

Thanks to huge advancements in technology, booking an STI appointment online is quick, easy and hassle-free. But this is just one of many healthcare services you can access. Booking GP appointments, getting travel health advice and seeking support with mental health, women’s health and children’s health issues can all be done on your phone or computer. It’s a no-brainer really; there are highly skilled GPs out there with the tools and resources to be able to diagnose and treat patients remotely. There are loads of busy patients across the country who don’t want their healthcare to take up all of their time. Put the two together and add a dose of clever technology, and you’ve got yourself an on-demand, unlimited, online healthcare service.

One of the best aspects of on-demand healthcare is the price. A one-off appointment to speak to a doctor costs £44.99. Or if you would like an ongoing relationship with our team, monthly membership costs £15.99, and you can speak to our doctors as many times a month as you need. You’ll always be able to choose a date and time that suits you. Plus, all appointments will take place via video chat. No more waiting rooms, no more awkward appointment times and no more annoying hold music!
