when you need it the most.
Find Out More

At GlobMed, we believe that in-person paediatric consultations offer optimal benefits for everyone involved. However, we also recognize that immediate same or next-day consultations may not always be accessible. Consequently, we have introduced online access to world-class Paediatricians to provide an alternative solution.

How It Works

Complete our booking form to secure a consultation for today or tomorrow with any of our available doctors.

Our healthcare management team will liaise with our network of paediatricians to secure a consultation as soon as possible.
Your healthcare manager will communicate the appointment details with you, via Email/Phone/WhatsApp. 

We will ask you to complete a simple questionnaire about your child so that we can provide the best possible assistance. We will ask about your child’s age and medical history, as well as any symptoms they might currently have.

Consultations are 20-30 minutes long and happen over Zoom. 
You will need a mobile/laptop with video-conferencing capabilities. 
Please ensure that Zoom is downloaded and working on your laptop before the consultation. 

Virtual consultations start promptly at the allocated appointment time. 
Your consultation will be very similar to visiting the doctor in their rooms, except it will be online. 
The Paediatrician will use the information that you’ve submitted and ask specific questions in order to screen or diagnose your child. 
The Paediatrician may require additional diagnostics, or provide a referral to specialists in-person paediatricians or emergency services when required while having your child’s best interest at heart.

Should your child need a prescription, a GlobMed healthcare manager will liase with you, the paediatrician and a UK pharmacist/prescriber when possible at a cost of £30.
Should you have a question after your consultation, please feel free to email you healthcare manager, who will communicate with your doctor or recommend a follow-up appointment.
