With hospitals getting overwhelmed with COVID-19 cases, other medical concerns had to take a backseat but this doesn’t mean that other healthcare services are no longer available.
Teleconsultation services are available for those who need to see a doctor but can’t leave the house because of quarantine restrictions, the Department of Health said. This can be done over the phone or online during the community quarantine.
“The public is also called on to utilize teleconsultations for non-urgent medical needs to avoid overcrowding in hospitals and ensure that all critical patient needs are attended to,” the DOH said in an advisory.
Should you need to get in touch with a doctor, here are the different teleconsultation services affiliated with the Department of Health:
The public can also contact the DOH hotline at 1555 or 02-894-COVID. Filipinos are urged to stay at home if possible to combat a renewed surge in COVID-19 infections.
While it’s advisable not to go to the hospital for minor medical concerns these days, it’s still important to live close to health facilities and other essential establishments for our own peace of mind.
