Video Consultations

See a doctor in just a few minutes!

We need to get some information before we can provide the best possible care for you. To do this we ask  that you fill out the following short questionnaire.

Appointments available

  • 8am to 10pm – Monday to Friday
  • 10am to 6pm – Saturday
  • 10am to 6pm – Sunday

Who can we treat?

We can treat you or a child in your care. For anyone else, they must be signed up to Webdoctor and book their own consultation. You cannot book a video consultation for another adult, they must have their own account.

We define an adult as anyone aged 17 years or older.

We can only treat patients who are physically located in the Republic of Ireland at the time of consultation.

For patients who are overseas, we can offer medical advice ONLY. We cannot issue prescriptions, medical certificates or referrals if you are outside the Republic of Ireland.

If you are booking a video consultation for a child, you MUST be physically present with the child at the time of the video consultation. This is for reasons of medical safety as the doctor will have to be able to see and hear the child on the video call.


How much does it cost?

Prices for a video consultation with a doctor start at just €35. Prices vary depending on the time of day.

If you are a Corporate Care member your consultation will be free or discounted.

Please be aware

If you are booking a video consultation for your child, to discuss getting an Exemption Letter from mask wearing at school for medical reasons, you are advised to discuss this with your own GP.

We are unable to issue these letters, in any circumstances.
