Medgate

The free medical consultation over the phone or online.

Our services

This is what you do

  1. Call Medi 24.
  2. Give them your personal details, your insurance number, your symptoms and a callback number and arrange a callback appointment. Tip: write down in advance what your problem is. In urgent cases you will be put through to the doctor straight away.
  3. To help assess skin and eye complaints you can send a digital image by e-mail on request.
  4. A doctor will call you back and discuss treatment with you: you treat yourself, you consult a doctor in person or are hospitalised. For certain illnesses the doctor can write you a prescription or refer you to a pharmacy near you. In an emergency, Medgate will alert the emergency services for you.
  5. With certain illnesses the doctor will ask you how you feel again a few days later in a second phone call.
