Paddington Teleconsult alone

If your condition is deemed to be suitable for just teleconsultation alone, Paddington Medical can also arrange for secure medication delivery services for medications, medical certificates and/or medical memos (if relevant) to be delivered to your location quickly after the tele-consult.

 

Alternatively, we can pre-pack all the medications and you can drop by our clinic to pick up the medications.

Paddington Teleconsult with quick follow-up in clinic

The advantage of an initial teleconsultation, is that an initial assessment can be taken in the comfort of your own home. If, after your teleconsultation, our Doctors have assessed that your condition requires an in-person review, you will be advised to come to our clinic for a quick physical examination for confirmation of the likely diagnosis.

While you are travelling to our clinic, we will be pre-packing the medications for you so as to reduce your waiting time in clinic. You will not be charged another consultation charge when you come to our clinic for the physical examination. After the quick review, your medications will be ready for immediate pick-up. 

For certain medical conditions, Paddington Medical will inform you and claim the appropriate Government Subsidy (CHAS / Merdeka Generation / Pioneer Generation / PHPC) if applicable during the teleconsultation.
