To further support our community, Discount Drug Stores have now partnered with Doctors on Demand to provide Telehealth services. It is now easier than ever to book a virtual consultation with a General Practitioner, obtain a prescription and collect it from 100+ Discount Drug Stores around Australia.

WHY USE TELEHEALTH
The true cost of seeing a doctor face-to-face is not just the money, it takes a lot time. Making an appointment at a suitable time, arranging time off work, travel to and from the medical centre, time in the waiting room and then the time at the pharmacy. It all adds up.
Telehealth enables you to consult a doctor from the comfort of your own home and collect your medication from your local pharmacy at a time of your choice.
PREPARING FOR ONLINE CONSULTATION
A computer, smartphone or tablet with an internet connection is required. Video consultations will require a device with speakers and a front-facing camera.
