Funding
Both patient and the secure professional levels of Virtual Medical Centre are free to access. However, there are a number of costs associated with the services we provide, including site maintenance and continued development, hosting, production of health e-newsletters etc.
Prior to including advertising on the site, we surveyed our members and Editorial Board with respect to their thoughts on advertising so we could continue to grow and provide our services free of charge. The consensus was that the necessity of advertising was understood and acceptable as long as the strict advertising policy guidelines are adhered to.

The final decision of editorial content in a medical centre is made by the Medical Director responsible for that area. The Medical Director's information is published on the About Us page. If a particular medical centre does not have a Medical Director, then Dr Andrew Dean, Group Medical Director makes the final editorial decisions.
