KonsultaMD provides 30-day free public access to medical advice
The free Konsulta subscription is open until April 13 to anyone without existing membership. They may call 78880 via Globe/TM mobile phone or (02) 77988000 via Globe landline, other landline in Metro Manila, and other mobile networks. KonsultaMD is a 24/7 health hotline service manned by skilled and licensed Filipino doctors who provide medical assessment and advice, including basic healthcare and permissible medication, over the phone. With KonsultaMD, the public will be able to get immediate and affordable medical attention, anytime, anywhere in the Philippines. Due to limited capacity of medical institutions compared to the fast-growing number of people needing immediate medical attention, the Department of Health is looking at telemedicine, particularly primary care teleconsultation, to alleviate surge and minimize risks posed by unnecessary visits to hospitals.
