If you’re travelling abroad from England this summer, or just on a staycation in the UK, pack the peace of mind of a GP on call, when you need one.

If you’re travelling abroad from England this summer, or just on a staycation in the UK, pack the peace of mind of a GP on call, when you need one.

After a difficult year for many people, the thought of packing our bags and heading on holiday will help put a smile back on many faces. This summer it’s likely to be a UK staycation for many of us, but that still means you won’t have access to your usual GP services if you need them.

A Livi GP – with you, wherever you go

Livi is a video GP service that’s available to anyone from England, wherever you’re travelling.* We offer two services – a free NHS service and pay-as-you-go.

The free NHS service is available through many local NHS GP practices across the country. Just download the Livi app, and search for your practice to see if you’re eligible to get started. If your GP practice doesn’t work with us, you can choose to use our pay-as-you-go service instead – appointments cost £29.**

Once you’ve signed up, you’ll have access to a registered GP by video in moments, seven days a week and from anywhere in the world.

“This is an amazing service thank you. It is such a reassurance to get face-to-face advice with a professional at a time we wouldn’t normally have access.” Livi patient.

From the Canaries to Cyprus, Turkey to Thailand

For anyone holidaying away from home and needing access to a GP, Livi is the answer. It’s especially useful if you’re a parent with young children, a patient with ongoing health issues, or just someone who likes some extra reassurance.

And as long as you normally live in England you can see a GP by video when you’re away – however far you travel. For those having a holiday nearer home, we can also send prescriptions to any pharmacy in England (but unfortunately not in the rest of the UK – Wales, Scotland or N. Ireland or abroad).
