When You're Away From Home


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

Us Kiwis love exploring our big backyard. But, getting sick or injured while away from home, without easy access to your local GP, will dampen your adventure.

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-hours, every day of the year. We are always available to video chat about whatever is ailing you – no matter where you roam within Aotearoa.

If you're travelling abroad, please be advised to seek medical assistance locally. While many of Emergency Consult's doctors hold international credentials we can not guarantee certification to prescribe medicines in the particular country you're calling from.

Quality Doctors

All our doctors are highly-experienced Emergency Medicine Specialists and veterans of the NZ healthcare landscape. They’re on-call 24/7 ready to provide advice, treatment plans, medication and referrals, or decision-making support.

Easy Access

Accidents and illness seldom strike at a time that is convenient for you. But if unforeseen illness or injury does occur while you’re away, you can still access the care, treatment, and prescribed medication you need to get you back on your feet. And your patient notes can be emailed to your regular family doctor/GP.
