How can Anytime Doctor help me?
We provide this regulated, specialist service for patients who wish to obtain medicine to help overcome hay fever. This treatment service is for patients who get an allergic reaction to airborne substances such as pollen which get into the nose, sinus, or throat.
Hay fever is extremely common, about 15 per cent of the population in industrialised countries suffer from it. The name hay fever is misleading because symptoms do not simply occur in autumn when hay is gathered and never include a fever.
All services provided by Anytime Doctor are safe, fast and confidential (we do not inform your GP). You can obtain treatment within the privacy of your home and without the inconvenience of lengthy doctor waiting rooms.
