Frequently Asked Questions

You find the right doctor or health professional for your needs, or simply book a professional based on availability. Start your online video consultation at the scheduled time, to connect with your WellVine doctor/health professional. Our professionals are here to help you through your health and wellness queries – for you and your children. You will have access to video, audio and text chat and be able to upload documents throughout the session.
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. We also have a range of other health professionals such as nutritionists, lactation consultations and baby and toddler sleep counsellors, and our network is growing continuously.
Consultations start from as little as £30.
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. You can add credit by clicking here or going to your ‘Dashboard’ (via the dropdown menu on the upper right corner of the screen).
