Boots UK and digital healthcare provider LIVI have formed a new long-term partnership to enable patients to remotely access a Boots pharmacist via LIVI’s app. Patients will be able to get genral health advice and discuss prescription medications.
The companies think that the service has the potential to help reduce pressure on the NHS, “helping customers maintain simple and safe access to healthcare whilst at home”.
Included in the partnership is an expansion of the in-store pilot in several new Boots UK stores of access to GPs via a tablet in. The service offers LIVI video GP service via a tablet in-store, as well as a range of diagnostic tools, such as blood pressure monitoring.
