We now have a unique voucher code for PlayPennies parents, it's a 10% discount code for ThanksDr.co.uk, an online medical service based in the UK.
- VoucherCode: playpennies10
- Discount: 10% off
- Expires: 31st December 2010
On ThanksDr.co.uk, you can ask medical questions for a flat rate of £25, and qualified doctors will respond to your query. I did a quick test of the voucher code to make sure it works, and it was fine. When you are asking a question, it prompts for your gender, and your age, so they can use that information in helping to answer your question.
I find it interesting that payment is not taken until your answer is posted - this is good for peace of mind I reckon. They seem to have 11 online doctors, all with various specialisms to best answer specific questions.
I think it's a good idea in a way - some people don't want to ask their own doctors embarassing questions, and online medical response is nice and private.
I had a google about the company to see what I could see, and it has been launched fairly recently. Thanks Dr were featured in The Express where they talked about "trusting a virtual medic." I think as long as the responses are just restricted to advice, and not actually prescribing medication, then I would give it a try.
