With the myGP app, you don’t have to Advertorial myGP means you can access many vital healthcare services wherever you are, whatever time of day it is The invaluable myGP app enables you to make an appointment with your doctor directly, without having to reveal the gory details of your problem in an embarrassing phone call beforehand. It’s convenient too. Because you know exactly how it is when you need to make an appointment. You either remember at the wrong time and there’s an answering machine message (bossily) instructing you to ring back. Or you end up hanging on the phone for ages in a frustrating queue. Well, myGP is changing the experience of dealing with your family doctor forever. It’s already popular. More than 6,500 GP practices are using the app and the number is growing fast. In October 2021, an astonishing 128,672 patients across the UK used it to make appointments! So if you've got something, shall we say, delicate, to discuss with your doctor, in just a few clicks you can arrange to have that conversation without having to explain it to someone else first. It meets a very real need. In a recent survey of 2,000 Britons, 43% of men surveyed said they might put off contacting their GPs because they were embarrassed about having a sexual health issue.

Say goodbye to awkward conversations with your doctor’s receptionist, say hello to myGP! The app is the brainchild of tech entrepreneur Tobias Alpsten, who has been the CEO of iPLATO Healthcare for the last 15 years. He is a thought leader in the area of empowering patients to take control of their health through a better use of technology. Tobias said: "With the arrival of the Covid-19 pandemic came the rapid adoption of healthcare technology across the NHS. As an organisation, we have been providing services to the NHS for the last 15 years, and 2020 has seen my vision for online adoption in the sector catapulted into reality. Tech entrepreneur Tobias Alpsten, whose company iPLATO has developed the myGP app "We all know that, as a result of COVID-19, patients are now far more likely than before to see their GP remotely. Patients access their medical records and repeat medication online. Clinicians communicate with one another and with their patients virtually. And of course, patients complete online evaluations before receiving treatment. In short – a huge leap forward." He added: "We are all working toward the same end goal: a healthier and more empowered public. myGPs approach to patient engagement not only simplifies access from clinician to patient; it simplifies access to a holistic set of healthcare options for the patient. Our platform literally puts access to a broad range of health and care options at the patient’s fingertips. "But most importantly, as our mission statement has always read, it simplifies access to healthcare." Who can use the app? Anyone! It doesn't matter if you're 16 or 90, if you're registered with a GP and you've got a smartphone you can download the app from the Appstore or Google Play and you're away. What does myGP do? You can use myGP to book appointments, order repeat prescriptions, arrange to have your medication delivered free of charge and use it to facilitate virtual appointments. You can even set up the app to include other family members so if you are the one who sorts health care for kids, your partner and even your parents, myGP lets you do it easily. Is there anything else it can do? Oh yes! There are even tools that let you track your weight and blood pressure and help you take better control of your health and wellbeing. The app also uses targeted SMS messages about health issues including smoking cessation, and appointment reminders. No more scribbling the time and date down on a bit of paper and losing it in your handbag! Why should I use it? Apart from the convenience to you, myGP enables your doctor to save time and money on admin. They can redirect those funds towards providing better patient care. It’s why myGP is proving so popular with patients and with practices.
