In most cases you are able to consult with an online Doctor on demand meaning you can choose a time that suits you and within 15 minutes you should be able to speak to a GP or other Healthcare professionals.

Operating virtually allows us to offer consultations straight away or if you prefer you can book in the future when you are ready to take the call. For example if you are working and need it to be in the after hours our service operates 24/7, 365 days. Online consultations reduce the waitlist time which is often the case in face to face in clinic consultations .
During the booking process you can choose your time ‘GP Now’ or at a future time. At most times of the day you can choose a GP based on gender, language preferences or sub specialties. Please ask the medical receptionists.

In the consultation a doctor will assess your presenting condition and then provide you with a treatment plan. It is important to note that not all conditions can be treated via Telehealth. The doctor may suggest and refer back to your regular GP or emergency if considered appropriate.
