It’s 7am and that mild sore throat you had last night has turned into a fever. Your muscles ache and nose is runny, and you dread getting out of bed, let alone making your way to the nearest clinic. Wish you could see a doctor in the comfort of your own home? Good news—there’s an app for that!
Doctor World is a new healthcare mobile app that lets you video-call a licensed doctor in Singapore anytime, anywhere. After the teleconsultation, you can get back to resting—your MC will be sent to your email, and your prescribed medicine will be delivered right to your doorstep in under three hours.
Affordable and convenient
With Doctor World, you won’t just save time on travelling and waiting in line, but save money too since the consultation fee is generally cheaper than that of physical consultations in Singapore. The fee is just $18 nett* for a 15-minute consultation, and this covers the delivery of medication as well.
What’s more, you won’t have to bother getting your wallet out—payment can be made via your stored debit/credit card or eWallet, and an e-receipt will be emailed to you. The entire process is paperless, cashless and seamless.
*Medication charges apply separately.
Licensed doctors on-call 24/7
On top of convenience, you also get peace of mind. To ensure the quality of healthcare is not compromised, Doctor World partners only with Singapore-registered doctors from established healthcare providers such as Raffles Medical Group. The doctors are authorised to make clinical assessments based on the patient’s medical history and symptoms, prescribe medication, and issue sick leave and referral letters.
Common conditions for a teleconsultation include but is not limited to:
- Cough and cold
- Sore throat
- Menstrual issues
- Urinary Tract Infection
- Headaches and migraine
- Constipation and diarrhoea
- Skin issues such as acne and rashes
Basically, if it’s not an emergency medical condition*, Doctor World has you covered.
*For emergencies, head to your nearest A&E or call 995.
