Bettr from anywhere – four places you could see a doctor from

Bettr is revolutionising the way Kiwis get their health needs seen to by doctors. No longer do you need to get in the car, go to a physical clinic and hang around in a waiting room for extended periods of time to see a doctor in person. Bettr is taking the whole process virtual, and with it, getting rid of wait times.

Bettr is effective, accessible, and affordable healthcare on your terms. With an online virtual consultation, you can see a doctor via video or phone between 8am to 8pm, seven days a week. It’s a perfect solution for those with busy schedules, places to be, or who have dependents who make getting out just that little bit more difficult.

The only thing you need to see a Bettr doctor online is a smartphone, tablet or laptop with a camera and a good internet connection. With these simple requirements, you can see a doctor from just about anywhere. We’ve explored some of our favourites (and what we think will be yours too) below!

The comfort of bed

If you’re feeling under the weather, often the last thing you want to do is get out of bed, let alone navigate your way to a clinic and wait around to see your doctor. The good news is that you don’t have to with Bettr. 

Online consultations mean you have more time to rest up and get back on the road to recovery. With the ability to book an appointment in just minutes, find a time that works for you and then join the virtual waiting room just before your booking. The doctor will admit you, and your consultation will begin. It’s as easy as that! Even better, you don’t even have to get changed out of your pyjamas. And, if your doctor prescribes medication, you can even get it delivered to your home for just $5.

The breakroom at work

Our time is precious, particularly when we have to try and juggle our personal lives with work. Whether it’s a nagging pain, a funny rash, or to get a repeat prescription, the time needed to address minor concerns can be hard to justify – after all, the appointments might quick but the travel and wait are more than often not.

With Bettr, there is no excuse to neglect any health concern for the sake of time. With 15 minute online consults, you can schedule appointments during your lunch break with enough time left over to get a bite to eat. Next time you need to see a doctor, perch up in a quiet place at work like a meeting room or break room with your phone and make time for your health.

At school or university

If you are currently at school or university, your health may be the last thing on your mind. Between classes, studying, extra-curricular activities and hanging out with friends, you’ve got a lot on your plate – particularly if it is your first year at university.

Money can also be tight when you’re studying, and doctors fees can have you second-guessing a visit. With Bettr, you don’t have to worry about money or time. Enrolled patients with Bettr can see a doctor for only $10 a consultation, and if you’re under 14, it’s completely free. With the ability to book a time that best suits you, you can arrange for your consultation to occur between your classes, so you don’t have to catch up after the fact.

All online, there’s also no requirement to drive to a clinic. This is particularly great for those without a car (forget catching a bus) or those who have left home to study and are no longer near their family practice. So the next time you feel unwell, take a little time for yourself and book an appointment with Bettr.

On holiday

Our health isn’t going to play ball just because we go on holiday and accidents can and will happen. So when you next leave town to take a little time out for some much needed R&R, you can rest easy knowing that if anything does happen, you’ll be able to see a Bettr doctor from wherever you are.

So, as long as your motel, hotel, batch or campsite has wifi or you have cellular reception on your phone, you’ll be able to access the Bettr website to make an appointment and then have a video consultation with one of our friendly doctors. You could even do it from the beach. And if you get prescribed medication, you don’t have to worry about that either as we can send it to a pharmacy nearest you.

With Bettr, you can see a doctor from wherever you are. With appointments only $10 for enrolled patients and free for under-14s, Bettr makes healthcare affordable and ever so convenient. So the next time you feel unwell or have a health concern you want to address, don’t let distance or costs stop you from getting it seen to – book your next doctors appointment here with Bettr
