Are there set shifts?
No – you can work whenever you wish at the touch of a button on the ZoomDoc doctors app. Log on or off whenever you choose. We will even alert you when there is a high demand for home visits in your area, to make yourself available - should you wish.
Our in app technology will allow you to call the patient prior to attending. Telephone triage to ensure as a GP, we are the right provider of care or you can direct the patient to where they need to be seen. Or simply reassure your patient.
How do I Record notes?
Via the Doctor ZoomDoc app. These can get sent directly to the patient after the consultation. Forward these onto their regular GP as well.
How do I supply medications?
By providing private prescriptions or by arranging the delivery of medications by our pharmacy partners. In emergency situations you can supply medications from your Doctors bag and add the fee onto your visit charge.
What other services can I provide?
Private referrals, acute referrals to NHS specialties, sick notes and private letters. We will also be adding the ability to arrange investigations.
How does payment work?
Seamlessly. Get paid electronically after each visit – securely and safely. No waiting until the end of each month. Our ZoomDoc GP's will earn the majority of the fee. There will be a fee for telephone advice +/- the home visit dependent on the time of the day. Home visits (including a pre visit call) will range from £99 to £200 per patient. Our very small % cut enables ZoomDoc to work in the background; thus enabling you to be great home visiting doctors.
How do I register?
On this website or email us at email@example.com Once you have applied, we will meet with you in person and guide you through your app and becoming a ZoomDoc GP.
What support will I get?
As a ZoomDoc GP, our unique app based software will enable you to be great Doctors. We are on-hand to help with your registration and ZoomDoc’s on-boarding process in addition to providing IT support whenever you need us. Safety and security for all ZoomDoc GP’s is key, so we have implemented features to alert ZoomDoc should the need arise.
Who are ZoomDoc Doctors?
All of our Doctors at ZoomDoc are GMC registered, UK trained General Practitioners. They all work as GPs - mostly within the NHS, but also within the private sector. All of our doctors are tightly regulated and monitored by ZoomDoc and they are fully insured. They all undergo regular appraisal and revalidation.
Will I know who is coming?
Absolutely. There will be a picture of your local ZoomDoc GP with information about where they also work and their specialist interests. You will also see how many times they have been ‘liked’ by other ZoomDoc customers.
How long will they take?
Your ZoomDoc app give will give you an estimated time of how long it will take for your doctor to arrive.
What services are provided?
Medical assessment, clinical examination, diagnoses, prescriptions and referral letters. Referral to private hospitals or acutely to NHS specialists (if indicated). Sick notes can also be supplied if required.
What is a Pre-Visit Assessment?
Your GP will call ahead to check how you are. You might only require telephone advice and reassurance. It is also possible that your ZoomDoc doctor may feel it is far safer for you to be seen by other services in a quicker fashion. They may feel you need an ambulance instead of a GP. Your safety and care will always come first.
Where are my notes stored?
You will get sent a copy of your medical notes by your ZoomDoc doctor. You will also have the option of allowing us to update your regular NHS or private GP.
Medications and delivery
ZoomDoc can arrange for our local pharmacy partners to deliver your medication the same day (in the London area) or the following day nationally. Alternatively we can give you a private prescription that will allow you to obtain medication locally. ZoomDoc are unable to prescribe strong analgesics, including morphine based medications, benzodiazepines, strong sleeping tablets or medications that would normally be prescribed (or require close monitoring) by a Specialist.
How do I make payment?
All of your payments will be seamless by credit card through your ZoomDoc app. You will also receive a receipt that may be used for insurance purposes.
ZoomDoc is not an emergency service – if you or the patient has chest pain, is very short of breath, unresponsive or bleeding excessively then you should dial 999 and ask for an ambulance.
