Travellers

 
 

Away from home doesn’t mean away from medical care.

Us Kiwis love to travel. And even though COVID has clipped our wings somewhat many of us will still move around Aotearoa when we can. But even within our own country, getting sick or injured while away from home, without easy access to your local GP, will at best dampen holiday fun.

Whether you’re away for work or pleasure, going near or far, you can always count on Emergency Consult in your time of need. Our friendly doctors are online 24/7, always available to video chat about whatever is ailing you – no matter where you roam.

All you need is cellular coverage and you can be video chatting with a friendly, professional ED doctor in seconds.

 

Quality Doctors

All our doctors are highly-experienced, New Zealand-trained Emergency Medicine Specialists. They’re on-call 24/7 ready to provide medical advice, treatment plans, medication recommendations and decision-making support. Sometimes an expert opinion is just what you need to lead you in the direction of escalated care or on the road to recovery.

 

Access What You Need

Accidents and illness seldom strike at a time that is convenient for you. But if unforeseen sickness or injury does occur while you’re away from your usual healthcare provider, you can still access prescribed medication and treatment via our online service. And Emergency Consult has partnered with Worldwise Travellers Health and Vaccination Centres to assist international travellers who require medical advice.

 
 
 
  • Access on-demand emergency medical expertise

    The doctor you’ll speak with – a senior emergency medicine consultant – will discuss your symptoms and provide comprehensive treatment advice. The treatment can include prescriptions, referrals, further investigations (labs or x-rays), medical certificates, and ACC as required.
