Online Doctors Australia

Instant Consult provides a platform for instant connection to a qualified online doctor when you need it – 6am to midnight, 365 days a year.

We have created a way to get affordable and efficient health consultations from anywhere in Australia – from the comfort of your own home, via a computer, tablet, or smartphone. We created Instant Consult to supplement the traditional healthcare system in a convenient way – no need to book an appointment, simply log on and request a consult, and the first available online doctor will connect with you.

Need an Online Doctor? Choose Instant Consult

Instant Consult makes it easy to get access to fully qualified online doctors in Australia at your convenience – no matter where you are in Australia. If you have an internet connection (via Wi-Fi or data), a webcam/video function, speakers, and a microphone, you can take advantage of a simple, easy to use video interface. Our virtual doctors all practice to the standards as set out by the RACGP and ACCRM – both General Practice colleges in Australia.

Services Available with an Online GP Consultation

When you connect with one of our virtual doctors, you will receive an affordable consultation – whether you need advice, a prescription, a Medical Certificate, or a referral. The services available, if clinically appropriate, include:

We have created Instant Consult to be a supplementary service to the traditional healthcare service, making it easier for patients to have access to an online doctor consultation when they need it – no appointments, and less than 15 minutes waiting time.

When you have connected with one of our fully qualified virtual doctors, the consultation timer will begin, and the amount you will pay will depend on the length of time for a consult. At the end of the consult, you will have the advice and any medical paperwork that is deemed appropriate. In terms of cost, consultations start at just $45.

We have ensured that our services are compatible with Medicare, and they can be bulk-billed for patients under 12 months of age (with a valid Medicare card). If you need to pay for your online GP consultation, then you will find the costs are lower than any private practice for a standard consultation.

To get a Doctor’s appointment today, you need to be over 17 and living in Australia. Our web doctors can also help with under-17s, but a parent or guardian needs to give permission and be present for the consultation. Children must be logged in on their own accounts; our online GP service cannot offer a consultation for a child on an adult account.

How Do I Access An Online Doctor & Get a Doctors Appointment Today?

We have made it as easy as possible to get access to the Instant Consult service and get your doctors appointment today. If you are on any Windows PC, MacOS or an Android Tablet, you can use a Google Chrome browser. If you have a smartphone, our Android/iOS app is the best way to access the service.

If you have any questions, we have a support team available on the phone or by email to help.
