SCHEDULE 1 – SERVICE
CONSULTATIONS: VIDEO, AUDIO AND TEXT
- SERVICE AND RELIABILITY
- Certain Practitioners are employed by the Company and other Practitioners are independent third parties. The Company has taken reasonable steps to verify the identity of Practitioners against their regulatory body’s database of members and in the normal course of events will use reasonable efforts to verify certain background information about a Practitioner. However, the Company makes no representation or guarantee in relation to, and is not responsible for, the qualifications of any Practitioner or the suitability of any Practitioner that is not an employee of the Company.
- Consultations are subject to Practitioner availability. When you place an order for a consultation with a Practitioner, the Company shall use reasonable efforts to offer a consultation within a reasonable period of time, but the Company does not guarantee to offer a consultation with a specific Practitioner.
- By using a text, audio and/or video consultation, you consent to the use of a remote service.

- You understand and agree that consultations with Physicians and other Practitioners may be limited to 20 minutes in duration.
- Advice, information or other communications given or made remotely by audio or video are by their nature limited relative to a face-to-face consultation. A non-face to face consultation may therefore not be sufficient in certain circumstances and Users should be aware of, and by using the Company’s App and any other facility are deemed to have accepted, those limitations. In particular, a non-face to face consultation is unlikely to be appropriate or sufficient in circumstances of: (i) emergency, (ii) urgency, (iii) where a physical examination is likely to be required, (iv) where physical intervention is likely to be required, or (v) where the problem, issue or information required is not suited to remote communication.

- OUR COMMITMENT
Each of our Practitioners have committed:
- To provide a professional and transparent service that complies with the NICE International Guidelines on remote prescribing, essential standards of quality and safety as identified within clinical best practice and evidenced based care
- To provide medication only when in their professional judgment it is in the patient’s best interests to receive the medicine being requested and, accordingly, to refuse to provide medication advice when they believe it is not in the patient’s best interests to receive medicines without the benefit of a face to face consultation; and
- To take all reasonable steps to protect patients’ personal information.
