Ever wanted to ask a doctor or healthcare professional something, but didn’t know how to? Maybe you always have a headache after a busy day at work, or about your children get rashes in the morning.

Guardian Group on MyDoc: FOC and hassle-free healthcare service just a finger tap away

Maybe you have a simple question that isn’t worth a long trip to the clinic or hospital. Googling your question will give your 1000s of hits, but which one is correct? This is why Guardian launched a public health service on MyDoc.

Types of questions
You can choose between a doctor and a Guardian pharmacist to answer your question.
A Guardian pharmacist can advise you on pharmaceutical products, basic health questions, and specific medications. To provide the best service, Guardian has some of their best pharmacists on call during business hours to answer any questions you might have.
Doctors are on hand to answer medical-focused questions or provide health advice if you’re feeling unwell. The panel of doctors consists of registered and trained physicians under MyDoc, who can provide accurate answers to your medical questions based on their expertise. Doctor consultations have the added benefit of video consultations if you prefer that option.

Benefits of the service
Based on our data, almost 75% of all doctor, urgent care, and ER visits can be replaced by video or message consultations.
With this service made available, now it is possible to consult a doctor or pharmacist from the comfort of your home or office. It will save the time needed for you to make a trip to the clinic, queue, and see the doctor. It also helps cut down unnecessary transport and consultation costs you will need to fork out for a traditional, face to face consultation.

How to manage outbreaks in the face of a healthcare crisis

Dr. Snehal Patel, CEO and Co-Founder, MyDoc

When the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared the recent 2019-nCoV Novel Coronavirus outbreak a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC), I was in Bangkok speaking to a few business partners about expanding our digital healthcare services in the country. Naturally, in Thailand, there were a lot of concerns surrounding the 2019-nCoV coronavirus, more commonly referred to as the Wuhan virus.

Ever since the first reported case outside of China was announced on the 13th of January in Thailand, our clinical team has been closely monitoring the situation.

How do we define success? A truly successful weight loss programme is one that can ensure a weight loss beyond one year after completion of the programme. In fact, studies show that the percentage of people who fail to keep the weight off after 5 years is around 80%.

Most diets do not teach about healthy eating and positive behaviour changes; instead, they promote dietary changes that are difficult and unhealthy to maintain.

That isn’t the only problem. Here are some other reasons:
Our society encourages calorie consumption and minimal usage of them. Food is increasingly ultra-processed, portions are growing and most of us e…
