At GlobMed, we recognise that in-person consultations with a doctor are ideal for both doctors and patients. We also recognise that same or next-day consultations may not always be available in the UK. Consequently,we have introduced same day and next day access to world-class Paediatricians online to provide an alternative solution. .

How It Works

Register with GlobMed for an annual fee of £25 and receive a phone call within two hours from one of our healthcare managers to establish your requirements and arrange the consultation with an available or particular paediatrician best suited to deal with the problems you face. 
Once a date and time has been established for the consultation, simply pay the balance of £89 and the consultation will be booked with the doctor of your  choice.  

We will ask you to complete a simple questionnaire about your child so the paediatrician gets a better picture of the circumstances. We will ask about your child’s age and medical history, as well as any symptoms or medical conditions they may currently have.

Please be aware that overseas doctors in our network are not UK GMC registered unless stated otherwise but are fully qualified, insured and certified in their respective jurisdictions.

Virtual consultations happen at the allocated time and are done via Zoom, WhatsApp or phone call. Your consultation will be very similar to visiting a doctor in their practice, except it will be online. The paediatrician will use the information that you have submitted and will ask specific questions in order to screen and diagnose your child. 
The paediatrician may require additional diagnostics or provide a referral to particular specialists, in-person paediatricians or emergency services should it be required.

Once the consultation has concluded you will receive a comprehensive report, prescription recommendations and a customised treatment plan wherever necessary.
