Medimap partners with London Drugs
for in-store virtual doctor visits
February 9, 2021
London Drugs has selected Medimap’s virtual care platform to make in-store virtual doctor visits available to their patients and customers. London Drugs Ltd. is a Canadian retail pharmacy chain based in Richmond, British Columbia with 81 locations across Western Canada.
Every day thousands of people visit London Drugs locations to fill prescriptions or consult with a pharmacist for a myriad of health conditions. With this new partnership, London Drugs customers can easily speak to a doctor over a secure video call from either a private consultation room within minutes of entering the pharmacy, or from their homes with access through the London Drugs website.
Patients can visit pharmacist and access physicians virtually for a number of different reasons such as
- Select specialist referrals
- Mental health counselling
- Select prescription renewals
- Additional health concerns
Currently available at ten London Drugs locations in British Columbia and through LondonDrugs.com, with high probability for further expansion, patients utilizing the virtual care platform will be able to receive refills for non-restricted medications as well as other prescriptions like antibiotics and birth control with one visit to the pharmacy. Patients can also book appointments for select specialist referrals where a clinical examination is not required. They can also receive mental health counselling, and consultations regarding skin issues, allergies, upper respiratory conditions, and gastrointestinal issues as just some examples.
Doctor visits at a London Drugs location are covered by BC’s medical service plan just as if someone were to see a doctor in person.
This partnership with London Drugs is just one way that Medimap is committed to making access to care more convenient for Canadians.
