The service will be provided by experienced physicians and they will be able to assess and refer the patient based on their health condition.

Family medicine on-demand
Patients who have an urgent health concern or who are unsure whether they need to see a specialist should first consult one of Mediclinic family medicine doctors using the on-demand service. This service is available to everyone, regardless of whether you have been a patient at Mediclinic before. The family medicine doctors will be able to either diagnose and treat your condition or refer you to a specialist by video call if required. If they believe it necessary, they may ask you to make an appointment to visit the appropriate doctor in person.
The on-demand telemedicine service is available from Saturday to Thursday, 9am-5pm. For optimal functionality we advise you to use either Firefox or Google Chrome web browsers when opening the link above.

If you have not been a patient with Mediclinic before you should first access the mandatory preregistration form (here) and submit your details.
