Greatvine now offers personal health advice to your inbox

great-vine-imageExpert telephone service Greatvine now offers users confidential health and wellbeing advice via email, providing them with a new way to get help from the site’s community of specialists.

Greatvine is a service that brings a community of experts in various fields together with those looking for advice and support. Until now Greatvine users could chat to representatives and experts on the phone, but this week a new email service has been launched, which could be invaluable for those with niggling health problems who’d rather not visit a doctor.

To start using the service you visit, submit a query to whichever specialist you choose and then you’ll receive a direct reply from them within 24 hours. It’s a great idea for those who don’t have the time to go and see a regular nurse or doctor, or for those who want to talk about a sensitive or embarrassing subject and just daren’t do it face to face.

The really appealing thing about Greatvine is that you choose who you’re contacting and you can browse through their experience and biography before you do.

Now obviously there’s a slight downside to the service in comparison to say visiting a doctor, because the advice you’re being sent isn’t free. Although sending and receiving a personal response via email may have its advantages, you’ll end up paying £15 per response. The money is taken directly from your mobile phone bill, making it a quick and easy transaction, but you have to ask yourself whether parting with that many pennies is really worth it.
