Virtual consultation apps

These are apps enabling you to have an appointment with a New Zealand registered health practitioner without seeing them in person. This is also called a virtual consult or telehealth.

There are a variety of apps and online tools that enable you to consult with a doctor, nurse, psychologist or other healthcare provider virtually (not physically), through your phone or computer. This consultation process is also known as telehealth, video consults or virtual consults. On this page you can see some of the current platforms being used in Aotearoa New Zealand to enable this process.

Read more about telehealth and how to prepare for your video consult.

Some online tools require your doctor to send you a secure video call link, for example Doxy.Me. Others can give you access to a New Zealand registered GP who you may not be enrolled with.
