How does LIVI work?
With LIVI you can see a registered GP by video on your mobile phone or tablet. The GP can offer medical advice for symptoms that do not require a physical examination. First download the LIVI app and sign up. You will then be asked to select your current NHS GP practice. This is so we can see if you are eligible for the free NHS LIVI service that we offer in partnership with local GP practices. If you are, you can continue to book an NHS appointment.
To book an appointment, follow the steps in the app. You can choose to see the next available doctor (usually within minutes) or book a specific time in the next seven days.
Then fill out the symptom form as prompted. You also have the option to attach photos to help the doctor more accurately diagnose your condition. If the GP believes that you are in need of medicine or further care, you will receive a prescription or referral. The GPs can write medical fit (sick) notes for issues where a physical examination is not required for the note. It is up to each doctor to make an individual assessment of you as a patient.
Our service opening hours are: Monday - Friday: 7:00 am to 10:00 pm; Saturday & Sunday: 8:00 am - 4 : 00 pm.
LIVI Support is open from Monday - Friday: 9:00 am to 5:00 pm; Saturday & Sunday: 8:00 am - 4 : 00 pm.
Who are the doctors that work at LIVI?
The doctors that you see through LIVI are all General Practitioners, and GMC certified. All of the GPs have extensive experience in providing primary care to patients.
