PhysioFast Online (PFO), who offer interactive videocall appointments with qualified physiotherapists, has launched a strategic partnership with GPDQ, the leading GP-on-demand service, which enables both organisations to seamlessly offer a broader range of online services.
 
PFO provides businesses and individuals with access to specialist practitioners to provide expert assessment, advice, reassurance and management for any musculoskeletal disorder, disease, injury or query. Meanwhile, GPDQ’s innovative GP booking platform is used to secure video consultations, home visits or in-clinic appointment.
 
As part of this new partnership, companies or users scheduling a videocall appointment with a physio will also be able book to see a GP at the same time, and vice-versa. This unique collaboration will ensure that PFO and GPDQ work more closely together, as well as sharing best practice in terms of technology and delivering an exceptional user experience.
 
Katie Knapton, Founder of PhysioFast Online, said: “We are extremely proud to partner with GPDQ, a company that is at the forefront of innovation within the health sector. Our interactive videocalls and GPDQ’s on-demand solutions will complement each other perfectly and benefit users of both platforms.
 
“Leading research has found that video consultations are as effective as face-to-face appointments and our experience is that 3 in 4 people can be triaged, assessed and supported online without any need for physical treatment,” she added.
 
Dr Anshumen Bhagat, Chief Medical Officer and Founder, GPDQ, said: “We only provide access to experienced NHS GPs to ensure the care of our customers will be of the highest possible standard. Founded by qualified physiotherapists with extensive experience, it is clear that PFO shares our values, which is incredibly important to us. We are looking forward to a long and successful relationship.”
