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.

Red. An auspicious colour for an auspicious occasion. Well, not if it is turning up on your health care report. Chinese New Year is a time for joyful reunions and enjoying the company of loved ones. However, Chinese New Year is also a time when there are hidden dangers lurking. From the high sugar, high fat content foods, to the long journeys balik kampung , the festive season can quickly become a breeding ground for silent health risks. This year, Chinese New Year happens to fall during influenza season. Given the nature of festivities, there is an increased chance of human contact especially in crowded areas, which also means you are more susceptible to contracting certain illnesses. It certainly does not help that a lot of us, (this writer included) throw caution to the wind when it comes to looking after our diet over the festive seasons. Our immune system can be easily compromised by poor nutrition or lack of sufficient rest. This is especially when we are busy juggling
