Virtual Consultations

Need to see a clinician while you’re away?

Consider a virtual, online consult. They’re a great way to get an appointment with a clinician when your general practice team is busy or closed, or if you are away on holiday.

You can book a virtual on-line consultation with a GP with a New Zealand-based provider. You can find out more about virtual consultations at Healthinfo or Healthify.

What’s the cost?

Cost varies across providers and the arrangement they have with your general practice. Typically costs are between $20 to $100.

Practice Plus offers same-day, after-hours, virtual clinician appointments to suit you and your whānau. All clinicians are experienced, and licensed medical practitioners, registered with the Medical Council of New Zealand.

Practice Plus is available weekdays 5pm – 10pm and weekends/public holidays 8am – 8pm.

“What a lovely Doctor! Explored and discuss all my options with me and really cared about getting the best result for me.”
