Take your doctor on holiday with you… virtually, of course


Holiday without the headaches this December. And, if you happen to get one, the Discovery app will provide
24-7 access to trusted medical advice from doctors, so that you and your family can rest assured this December, no matter where in the world you go.

With the December holidays around the corner, all of us are looking forward to a well-earned break. And, if you’re travelling – whether locally or internationally - rest assured that Discovery DrConnect will be there to support you and your loved ones through medical events – with guidance on everything from beating jetlag to treating sunburn, jelly fish stings, nasty bug bites, or other conditions.

Simply download the app and take Discovery DrConnect with you wherever you go for access to medical advice, on your device anytime, anywhere.

Easy access to medical advice, anytime, anywhere.

If all you want is a simple answer to a common medical question, you can do a quick-search for verified medical information from a growing library of over five billion answers - provided by a worldwide network of over 105 000 doctors - helping you to quickly assess the severity of any condition and put your mind at ease.

Hopefully you will enjoy a healthy, medical event-free holiday. But, if you need advice or to see your doctor for a
follow-up visit, the Discovery DrConnect app allows you to book follow-up virtual consultations with your doctor you’ve recently seen face-to-face. Schedule a virtual consultation using video, audio or text - whatever works for you, no matter where you are in the world, paid from your available day-to-day benefits, depending on the plan you’ve chosen.

And, if you need to see a doctor face-to-face in the area you’re holidaying in, turn to the Discovery app and click on ‘Find a Provider’ – to search for a doctor near you, on our networks.

Have a persistent problem and want support while you’re away? Subscribe to newsfeeds and checklists from medical experts around the world, relevant to your condition to help you stay on track while you’re away.

And, the best part, is that this app is available 24/7, at no cost to you as a member of Discovery Health Medical Scheme.
