The Welzo Difference
Why is Welzo the best option? Here's why...
How does it work?
Unlike other online GP services, Welzo doesn't limit your appointment to just one concern. In your 15-minute session, our qualified doctors can assist you with any problem you need help with - at no extra cost! Then, if you require medication, the Welzo online pharmacy can have it sent to your door with our same or next-day delivery to most areas of the UK!
When should you book?
You should book an online GP appointment when you are experiencing a health problem, especially if the problem is new or unusual. A GP can help to determine if the issue is likely to require additional support, such as testing or medication.
According to the 2022 national NHS survey, 26.5% of patients who needed an appointment said they had avoided making one in the last 12 months as they found it too difficult.
According to the NHS GP patient survey findings, only 51.2% of people got an appointment at the time they wanted or sooner.
According to the 2022 NHS survey, overall, 55.1% of users had used at least one online general practice service in the 12 months before taking part in the survey.

Can I get a prescription from a Welzo online consultation?
Our NHS-trained doctors can recommend a suitable medication for you, which can be ordered from our Welzo online pharmacy immediately after your consultation.
The Welzo online pharmacy requires a short online consultation that will determine if you are suitable for a specific medication before you are able to purchase it. These consultations have been crafted by doctors and are able to decide based on your personal information, medical history and current concerns if you are eligible for a prescription.
Can I get a sick note from Welzo?
Yes, we can provide a sick note to those whose employers require a doctor's note to be eligible for sick leave.
You may be asked about the time you have already taken off due to sickness. This is because the government requires that you give your employer a fit/sick note if you have been ill for longer than 7 days in a row and have taken sick leave. This includes non-working days, such as weekends and bank holidays.
How much does it cost per appointment?
A Welzo GP appointment is £49. This price includes any prescriptions, referrals or sick notes that may need to be written during your consultation.
Please note: this will not include the cost of the prescription itself.
Do you offer immediate or same-day services?
We offer consultations in just 5 minutes! If you wish to have your appointment another time, our GPs are available 24/7.
You can schedule an appointment at any time of your choosing, whether that be on the same day or in a week. Welzo allows you to cater your appointments to your life.
How long will be appointment be?
Our appointments usually run for 15 minutes. However, if you require additional assistance, our GPs can extend this time to ensure your concerns are attended to.
Will my GP be able to see my medical history?
No, your GP won't be able to see any external medical records, this includes NHS records.
You may be asked about your medical history during your session. This is to ensure that your doctor has all the information they need to accurately determine your illness and how best to treat you.
What happens if I have technical issues during my consultation?
Please get in touch with our customer support team if you have technical issues during your consultation.
Can Welzo give me a referral for secondary care?
Yes, if during your consultation, our doctors believe that you require further care, they can provide you with a referral.
Referrals are generally only given to those who have already tried treatments and testing provided by a GP. If you are concerned that your ongoing treatments are not providing adequate support, speak to your GP about further options.
What technology should I use for my appointment?
The Welzo online GP appointments can be accessed from a phone, tablet or computer. Depending on your preference for a phone call or video call, you may require a device with a camera.
Can I schedule an appointment for my child?
Yes, you are able to schedule an appointment for a dependent aged between 1-16 years. After the age of 16, the individual can schedule and complete their own appointments without the need of a parent or guardian present.
Will Welzo send any information to my GP?
We will not send any information to external sources, including a GP without your consent.
How is an online consultation different from an in-person appointment?
Unlike in-person appointments, our service allows you to choose a time that works for you. This means you won't be held up in waiting rooms or need to relocate to your doctor's rooms.
An online appointment is ideal if you believe that you may be contagious as you won't need to leave your space to be seen to be a doctor. We recommend that in cases of infection, you schedule an online appointment instead of an in-person appointment as this will keep both you and others safe.
Are there any conditions that you can't provide advice about?
Yes, we are unable to provide advice if you are experiencing an acute injury or serious painful condition such as:
- Major trauma on any part of your body,
- Severe chest pain, a suspected heart attack or stroke,
- Head or neck injuries,
- A neurological defect or seizure,
- Sudden or heavy bleeding,
- Pregnancy-related complications
- Severe mental health issues
- Sudden onset of difficulty in breathing, including persistent breathlessness that may be an asthma attack
- Patients currently completing chemotherapy with suspected neutropenia.
If you are experiencing one of the above conditions and require necessary treatment, you should dial 999 for an ambulance when it's safe to do so.
Can I use a Welzo online consultation in an emergency?
No, this service should not be used in an emergency.
If you, or someone around you, are in need of immediate medical attention, you should call 999 as soon as possible.
If you are unsure if your concern is an emergency, call the NHS on 111.
