COVID-19: GP celebrates access to virtual (online) consultations for his patients

Globally, the use of telemedicine has proven invaluable in the management of COVID-19. No one knows this better than Dr Sudeshan Govender, a KZN-based GP. He has for years, run a digitally enabled practice. He is used to carrying out virtual follow-up consultations with his Discovery Health Medical Scheme member patients. He does this using Discovery’s DrConnect app. He tells Azania Mosaka that when it comes to COVID-19, virtual access to his patients is proving lifesaving. And, thanks to the new Vodacom and Discovery partnership, now all of his patients – and every single South African – can access Free COVID-19 Online Doctor Consultations.
