Doctorcall's overseas telemedicine consultations

We’ve reached that time of the year when long-planned holidays are finally coming to fruition. The idea of some time away from the usual daily pressures is tantalisingly close to becoming a reality – it’s summer and we’re all looking forward to getting away for a relaxing few days or even weeks.
For the vast majority, they will enjoy their time with no issues. Unfortunately, for a small number that won’t be the case.
Falling ill at any time is a stressful experience, but especially so when your usual support system is not close by. Grappling with daunting foreign hospitals or pharmacies is a challenge and language barriers only complicate matters further.
Often simple reassurance is all that’s required or straightforward advice from a trained professional.
Wherever you are spending your summer, the Doctorcall team is on hand to provide medical advice and assistance – we are fully licensed, qualified and insured to provide telemedicine consultations for UK residents in any country.
Speak with a UK-based private GP who can not only deliver medical advice wherever you are, but also in many countries issue an electronic prescription. This will be provided instantly, and a local pharmacy will be able to dispense the medication prescribed.
It has been incredibly well-received by both regular clients of Doctorcall and also people discovering our services for the first time.
We’ve helped patients right across the world – from West Africa to Western Australia, with positive feedback throughout.
In addition to a one-off consultation, our new membership scheme delivers the ultimate peace of mind. Unlimited video consultations are included, which can be accessed wherever you are in the world.
Meaning that if an unpleasant situation does develop, you know that there is a friendly medical voice only a phone call away – trusted and accessible.
If you are planning a final summer getaway or travelling overseas later in the year, make a note of our details and please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
