WellVine professionals are qualified and experienced doctors, who have been thoroughly vetted before joining the WellVine network. This includes experienced General Practitioners (GPs) as well as Paediatricians, as we see children’s health as our core focus.

Just select a professional based on their profile and expertise and book a consultation. Or simply book a consultation based on the time slot most convenient for you.
To pay for a consultation, you will need to have ‘credits’ on your account. We will be updating our system shortly to make the payment process easier for you. In the meantime, please bear with us. You can add credit equal to the cost of your current consultation, or you can choose to add extra credit so you have it available next time you book a consultation.
