I don’t write many reviews, but when a service or product exceeds expectations, saves time and money, and is reliable and convenient, I am happy to take the time to recommend and acknowledge those products/services and the people behind them.

Important Medical Information

Who Is This Service Suitable For?
GP Video Consultations

Our doctors can treat you or a child in your care. If you are booking a GP Video Consultation for a child, both you and the child must be physically present during the consultation. The video consultation will not be able to proceed if both parties are not present and visible.

You cannot book an online GP Video Consultation for another adult, they must have their own confidential account. Our service regards an adult as anyone who is 17 years or older.

Online Treatment Service

Through our Online Treatment Service, we offer prescriptions for a wide range of common conditions, where clinically appropriate. You can find each treatment page here.

Nurse Phone Calls 

Through our Nurse Phone Calls service, you’ll find a sympathetic ear and answers to your health questions and concerns. Our qualified nurses are there to provide medical advice for all of life’s bumps and bruises, scrapes and scratches, and flus and fevers.

Please note: Nurse Phone Calls is an advice-based service and we cannot provide prescriptions, referrals or medical certificates through this service. However, we can let you know if you should seek medical advice from a GP.

Who Is This Service Not Suitable For?
Online GP services and Nurse Phone Calls are not suitable for medical emergencies. If you or your child are experiencing a medical emergency, you should contact emergency service on 112 or 999 immediately. This includes:

  • Severe chest pain
  • Severe breathing difficulties
  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Sudden onset of severe or incapacitating headache
  • Sudden weakness of any body part
  • Sudden loss of vision
  • Profuse bleeding
  • New onset confusion, drowsiness or sleepiness

*please note this list is not exhaustive

We can manage some common conditions in pregnancy that are not pregnancy-related in GP Video Consultations. However, you should be aware that you may be asked to attend your local GP if a physical examination is felt to be clinically appropriate.

Online Treatment Service

Through our Online Treatment service, we offer prescriptions for a wide range of common conditions, where clinically appropriate. You can find more information on the suitability of each treatment on our individual treatment pages. You can find each treatment page here.

Nurse Phone Calls

Nurse Phone Calls is an advice-based service and we cannot issue prescriptions, referrals or medical certificates through this service. If you need to renew a prescription, you may be able to do so using our Online Treatment Service. If the treatment you need is not listed, you can speak directly with a GP via our GP Video Consultation service to discuss your prescription.

What Can We Treat In A GP Video Consultation?

We can treat some of the most common illnesses that may not require a physical examination. These include:

  • Coughs & colds.
  • Sore throat.
  • Upset stomach.
  • Female urinary tract infections/ cystitis (non-pregnant).
  • Skin & eye issues.
  • Mild to moderate anxiety and low mood (Note: we do not provide controlled medicines, like Xanax or any sleeping tablets).
  • Joint or back pain.
  • Stable medical conditions such as diabetes, thyroid disorders, hypertension & high cholesterol.
Are There Illnesses/Conditions That You Cannot Treat in a GP Video Consultation?

As we cannot perform a physical examination, we cannot safely manage certain conditions. This includes the following:

  • Ear symptoms (including pain, discharge, bleeding, internal itching, and hearing loss).
  • Testicular lumps
  • Sudden onset of severe testicular pain
  • Breast lumps
  • Urine infections in children (patients under 16 years old), males, and pregnant women
  • Children under 1-year-old with a temperature of more than 38 degrees

There may be other conditions or situations when it is not safe for us to manage your condition via an online GP video consultation. If this is the case, our doctors will explain the reason for this and discuss your options with you.

Management of Mental Health Concerns

If your current symptoms are not suitable for us to manage appropriately and safely via a GP Video Consultation, the doctor may advise that you make an appointment with a local GP for follow-up. We have a large number of GPs in our service, so you may see a different GP each time. This means the ideal continuity of care will be difficult to achieve. 

We are not able to manage/ assess mental health conditions in patients less than 18 years of age.

Can You Provide Referral Letters And Medical Certificates In A GP Video Consultation?

Yes, we can provide GP referrals to A&E and hospital consultants. We can also provide referrals for scans, such as X-Rays, ultrasounds, MRI, DEXA, and CT scans.
*all subject to clinical suitability

We can provide medical sick certificates but it is important to note that we cannot provide retrospective medical certificates. These can only be issued where a patient has been seen within 48 hours of the onset of symptoms or appropriate medical documentation is provided.

We cannot issue certificates/reports that require a physical examination, including but not limited to:

  • Ergonomic assessments for workplace/home office equipment
  • Driver’s license medical reports
  • Fit for work certificates
  • Fit for sports certificates (e.g. gym/marathons/sports)

It is important to note that requests for medical certificates are dealt with on a case-by-case basis. It is possible that our doctors may not be able to assist with all medical certificate requests as an in-person examination may be required.
If you’re unsure if your request can be dealt with in an online GP Video Consultation, please email info@webdoctor.ie and we can advise you further.

Will Pharmacies Accept Prescriptions from Webdoctor.ie in Ireland?
