In response to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, Marie Stopes South Africa has launched a telemedicine consultation service…
Telemedicine allows healthcare professionals to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients at a distance using telecommunications technology and is increasingly important for women seeking sexual health services during these trying times.
It is a safe and convenient way for women who are unable to come to the centre for sexual and reproductive health services.
How consultations work
By calling the Marie Stopes South Africa TOLL FREE line (0800 11 77 85), women will speak to trained service professionals whose duty it is to inform women on available services.
The consultation sessions are only 20 minutes long and provide the necessary information on whether to collect the medication prescribed or to have it delivered to the home.
The service option is completely safe as it is conducted by specially trained service providers who will be available to guide you through the entire process. By allowing women to access safe contraception services remotely via telemedicine, this removes unnecessary travelling to clinics and reduces the risk of contracting the deadly COVID-19 virus in the process.
