On 16 March, the UK government announced we should avoid all non-essential travel and contact with others where possible, in attempt to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

Whilst the main concern is people’s health and well-being, the advice has left many of us worrying about how these new safety measures will impact our daily lives.

Thankfully, in today’s world many of our needs can be taken care of online. So, to help you follow the government’s advice and protect yourself, your loved ones and the wider community – here are 6 online services you may find useful.

1. Virtual GPs


To reduce the spread of infection, some surgeries are offering video consultations instead of face-to-face appointments.

So, if you’re feeling unwell and need to see your GP, it may be a good idea to see if this option is available first. If not, it’s usually possible to arrange a telephone appointment instead.

2. Online prescriptions


If you normally go to the pharmacy to collect your prescription, why not save yourself a trip and order online? Most GP practices can arrange this for you, just telephone their reception or look at the information on their website.

3. Online groceries


Supermarkets can be busy places at the best of times. So, one way to avoid the crowds (and the toilet roll panic buyers) is by purchasing your food groceries online.

All major supermarkets now have an online delivery service, so to protect yourself and others around, why not start shopping from your sofa instead?

4. Netflix


For your own sanity, it’s important to find ways of keeping yourself entertained during self-isolation. We’re all guilty of binge watching an entire series, only to resent ourselves afterwards.

But if your symptoms mean you can’t leave your house, surely there’s nothing wrong with the odd marathon stint?

5. Amazon


From cleaning supplies, pet care, entertainment and so much more, Amazon offers anything you could ever wish for, delivered straight to your doorstep.

For Prime customers, you can also enjoy a wide selection of movies and series at your fingertips.

6. Buy a car entirely online


Maybe your car is no longer fit for purpose, or perhaps you’re simply ready for a change. Either way, visiting dealerships might be on your list of places to avoid right now.

But with Creditplus, our unique Find, Fund and Deliver service means you can complete your car buying and finance journey entirely online – all from the comfort and safety of your own home.
