Key benefits of the Saga GP service

  • Get unlimited GP appointments over the phone 24/7, 365 days a year, anywhere in the world – talk to a GP in complete privacy and confidence from the comfort of your home or wherever you are in the world.

  • We can arrange a doctors appointment at a time that’s convenient to you – fast access to a GP can bring additional peace of mind and unlike appointments at many surgeries, you’re not limited to a 10-minute time slot and can call the Saga GP Service as many times as you like.

  • Message a Doctor – if you have a general health query you can use the service to message a doctor, including an image. The doctor will respond to your email address the next working day.

  • Order private prescriptions direct to your door – if appropriate, any private prescription offered via the Saga GP Service can be fulfilled and delivered to your door so you don’t have to leave the house if you're feeling unwell.

  • Access trusted health information – over 1,100 topics from a comprehensive medically validated UK database.

  • Book video consultations with an experienced doctor – speak face-to-face with a GP via your webcam or smartphone. Appointments are available to book 8am-10pm Monday to Friday, 8am to 8pm Saturday and 8am to 6pm Sunday.
