FAQ’s

Doctors on Demand is an online virtual care service that provides patients with access to doctors via video appointments. We provide a convenient and secure service for you to see a doctor via video consultation at a time that suits you, from the comfort of your own home, or on the go with your mobile device. Our model gives GP’s a platform to deliver care in a more efficient and patient-centric way. It is the perfect solution for time-poor patients and those unable to readily access health services. We are a patient-driven service. As a patient, you are in control of the timing of your consultation. You simply need to register or log in and choose: “Speak to a Doctor” and you can book your appointment with one of our Medicare eligible doctors. There is no need for you to phone our reception to arrange your appointment – so you can arrange your appointment online whenever and wherever suits you.
The ultimate benefit is the convenience to you. Doctors on Demand provides patients with convenient access to doctors online. This is exceptionally useful for time poor patients who can now avoid driving, parking and sitting in a waiting room with sick people, and can be speaking with a doctor at a time that suits them. This is of particular benefit to rural patients or those where access to local General Practitioner’s is limited. Any prescriptions can be sent as an ePrescription via SMS to your mobile phone or delivered via fax and email to your local pharmacy for immediate collection of your medication or we offer an Express Post delivery service for home delivery through our Partner Pharmacy where your prescribed medication is sent directly to you.
Doctors on Demand can provide a bulk-billed telehealth consultation for nicotine and smoking cessation counselling. Please ensure you have your Medicare card details ready in order to be eligible for this. If you do not have a Medicare card, then private fees will apply.
Simply choose “Speak to a Doctor” on the homepage. You can choose to see a doctor “Now” i.e. no waiting or choose an appointment time that suits you. If you are a new patient, you will need to register on our platform. Registering is free and requires you to answer some general medical questions, just like any other medical centre. You will need to know your Medicare card details in order to be eligible for a bulk billed consultation. Enter the reason for your appointment, your preferred pharmacy and your payment details (if required), then sit back, relax and wait for your Doctor on Demand to join the session at the designated time.

If you have a valid Medicare card, you can speak to one of our doctors at no cost to you, who can discuss your options to quit smoking, which may include prescribing nicotine e-cigarettes. The recommended approach of our doctors for prescribing nicotine vaping products is to use an established local supplier here in Australia and a pharmacy supplying closed pods only. The provision of a prescription is within the professional discretion of the consulting doctor.
The standard practice of our doctors for NRT is to prescribe low dose, closed pod nicotine vaping products as a second line treatment to quit smoking cigarettes. Our partner pharmacy has selected an established local supplier of nicotine e-cigarettes which are available to order online with a valid prescription. Patients wishing to pursue a personal importation scheme will be considered on an individual basis and the availability of this depends on the scope of practice of the individual doctor conducting the appointment.
