When you make an appointment to see a doctor, you usually want to see them at the earliest opportunity. However, many of us find that the earliest opportunity can be days away rather than in the next couple of hours. It may also be difficult to travel to the surgery at the time specified due to transport or health problems. For occasions like this, being able to chat with a doctor online can be extremely beneficial, especially when, with Instant Consult, you can be speaking to a fully qualified practitioner within 15 minutes.

With our service, you can access a fully qualified online doctor to chat to online. Wherever you are in the country, our service enables you to access online doctor chat in Australia discuss your medical concerns and request prescriptions, referrals, and medical certificates. Designed to supplement the traditional healthcare service, Instant Consult provides a fast and convenient way to get access to medical consultations and services quickly without having to travel.

Chat with an Online Doctor in Australia

We have developed an easy-to-use patient system that’s available from 6am to midnight every day of the year. By logging onto our system, you can request a consultation with an online doctor and chat with them about your health concerns, issues or ask for an online prescription. We aim to connect you to one of our fully qualified physicians within 15 minutes – it really is that straightforward. Since we began our service, we have helped over 50,000 patients to gain access to the consultations they need with over 10,000 consultations a month and we’re here to help you too.

Once you’ve connected with an online GP, you can chat with them via a video link using your desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone. Our prices are extremely competitive and are lower than those usually charged by private practices. We also offer Medicare support for eligible patients and, as all our GPs are fellows of RACGP and ACCRM you can feel fully confident that you’ll be getting sound medical advice.

You need to register with us before you can place a request for an online doctor chat in Australia and you must be 17 years and older to access the service. We do, of course, offer consultations for minors but they can only be carried out with the permission of a parent or guardian who must also be present throughout the consultation. Please note, children need their own Instant Consult account – we cannot undertake a consultation for a child through an adult account.

How Much Does It Cost to Chat with an Instant Consult Doctor?

It costs less than you may think to chat with an online doctor. Consultations are timed from the moment the chat begins and the final charge is dependent on how long your chat lasts. Calls are charged as follows:

  • Brief Consult – Less than 10 minutes: $35
  • Standard Consult – 10-20 minutes: $45
  • Long Consult – 20-40 minutes: $65
  • Prolonged Consult – 40 minutes or more: $105

Once the consultation is over, your nominated debit or credit card will be charged.

No matter how careful we are, everyone gets sick or injured at some point and there comes a time when you have no other recourse but to seek out a medical professional. Unfortunately, seeing your GP has traditionally always been an inconvenient process of booking an appointment, waiting in a room with other sick people and eventually be called in just so you could get an authoritative medical opinion.

Due to our busy lifestyles, it’s just not always convenient to go jump through all these hoops, especially when you only need a quick check-up or to update a prescription. Luckily, there is now a solution.

Instant Consult is a FREE phone application that allows you to instantly connect and chat with a doctor via video call. You can even upload photos for the practitioner to examine and get official correspondence sent straight to your app’s dedicated inbox.

Instant access to chat with a doctor with a comprehensive range of services

With Instant Consult, you can chat with a doctor and get help for a wide range of medical requests, all from the comfort of your home!

Medical Certificates

Are you too ill to come into work and need to give your boss a medical certificate? With Instant Consult you can chat with a doctor and get a medical certificate sent directly to your app’s inbox, all without getting out of bed!

Prescriptions

If you need a new prescription or need to update an ongoing one then you can use our app to instantly chat to a doctor who can prepare your prescription promptly!

Referrals

If you have a medical condition that needs treatment from a specialist, one of our GP’s can send a digital referral straight to your app’s inbox.

Pathology Requests

If you need a blood cell count or to check for STDs/STIs or need any other kind of bloodwork you can easily get a pathology request sent to your inbox by any of our fully licensed online GPs. You can then take the request to the clinic of your choice.

Radiology Requests

If you require any special kind of diagnostic imaging such as a CAT scan or an MRI you can get a request from one of our online GPs which you can then take to your preferred provider.

Chat with a doctor at your convenience, the power is yours

Using Instant Consult you can chat with a doctor and get the medical service you need when it suits you.

At Instant Consult, we have strived to provide the most convenient possible medical service:

  • Day and night access
  • Practitioners strive to answer your call immediately, with very short wait times
  • We use 256 bit SSL certificates so that your information is always secure
  • All correspondence with GPs is done digitally, so there’s no annoying paper trail to sift through
  • Use our star rating system to easily give feedback after your consult

At Instant Consult, our ongoing goal has been to provide a convenient and comprehensive medical service that meets the needs of an increasingly busy world. We realised that people are looking for ways to engage with services in more efficient ways, and Instant Consult is the quickest way to chat with a doctor in Australia from wherever you are.

Considering the fact most of us have access to video conferencing via our smartphones, it doesn’t make any sense that we need to physically attend an appointment for small medical errands.

Using Instant Consult, you can access a huge range of important medical services and chat with a doctor without needing to travel anywhere. We know that people are changing the ways they engage with their health services and we are happy to be a part of this shift.
