(b)    it is your responsibility to honestly present information when questioned in as much detail as possible to the Practitioner(s) you are consulting with as you accept this directly affects the outcome of your consultation.

SCHEDULE 1 - CONSULTATIONS TERMS AND CONDITIONS (COVERING VIDEO, AUDIO AND TEXT CONSULTATIONS)

 

 

 

1.  NATURE OF ADVICE GIVEN VIA THE SERVICES AND RELIANCE

 

1.1           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.

 

1.2           Consultations are subject to Practitioner availability. When you select an available Practitioner, the Company shall use reasonable efforts to offer an immediate consultation, but the Company does not guarantee to offer a consultation if that Practitioner becomes unavailable.

 

1.3           By using a text, audio and/or video consultation, you consent to the use of a remote service.

 

1.4           You acknowledge that while the Company takes all reasonable precautions, due to the nature of electronic communications the security of a remote interaction cannot be guaranteed.

 

1.5           You understand and agree that consultations with GPs may need to be limited in time duration if the individual Practitioner deems that no further help can be offered or that continuing the consultation would not give clinical benefit; this is at the discretion of the individual Practitioner.

 

1.6           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 Site and 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.

 

1.7           It is the responsibility of the User to evaluate whether any advice received via the Services is suitable or sufficient for the User’s needs, to what extent the User should rely upon it and whether the User should seek the assistance of their GP, other medical practitioner or emergency services.

 

1.8           If, following use of the Site or App, you are in any doubt, or have any concerns regarding any information or advice you have received or failed to receive via the Services, or regarding your health, wellbeing or any conditions, you agree to seek further medical opinion from a registered GP or suitable healthcare professional not affiliated with the Services and/or shall utilise the emergency services as applicable.  Our Site and App can help you with this; Practitioners have the option to show you GPs local to your current location.

 

 

2. AMENDMENT OF THE TERMS

 

A User may separately agree terms and conditions with a Practitioner in relation to the Terms upon which that Practitioner is willing to provide services to the User.  If that is the case, such agreement shall not affect these terms to the extent they apply to the relationship between the User and the Company.

 

3.  COMMITMENT TO YOU

 

3.1           Each Practitioners who is actively consulting on MyMed has committed:

 

a)           to provide, when accepted and having had your GP account activated by MyMed, a professional and transparent service when you are available that complies with (i) the General Medical Council Guidelines on remote prescribing, essential standards of quality and safety as interpreted by the Care Quality Commission and clinical best practice in the UK; or (ii) the Medical Council Guide to Professional Conduct and Ethics for Registered Medical Practitioners, Seventh Edition 2009, and clinical best practice in Ireland;

 

(b)        to volunteer, where requested in a consultation, your name and General Medical Council / Irish Medical Council professional registration number when prescribing medicines and communicating with patients;

 

(c)        to prescribe medicines 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 prescribe medicines when they believe it is not in the patient's best interests to receive medicines without the benefit of a face to face consultation

 

(d)          to show patients their nearest face-to-face GP services using our Site and App services to do so, and to encourage their consultation at these establishments instead, whenever you feel this is more clinically appropriate than your online consultation; and

 

(e)        to take all reasonable steps to protect patients' personal information.
