Differences between the mobile and desktop service Direct integration to the number 1 free medical app, myGP®.
myGP® is a very popular app and provides a 24/7 digital doorway to the local practice. Many of the frustrations of people with local primary care services come down to access. myGP® and the preGP® service start from the position of patients being able to book appointments and then helping guide and signpost their journey.
Medical record access and prescription management are also key features of myGP®.
