Our health advice hotline

Telemedical advice helps with specific health conditions or for general healthcare questions in an easily understandable, independent and scientific manner. The caller is given a recommendation as to the degree of medical urgency so they can embark on the right course of treatment.

3,000 people a day use our health advice line for severe medical conditions or for information on health matters or finding a care provider.

Online consultations

Medi24 also provides online consultations. Internet questions about symptoms and diseases, treatment and prevention are answered by our professional team of skilled health professionals.

Customers can ask questions using a contact form and, if necessary, upload photos of the affected parts of the body. A reply will be received on workdays within 48 hours. Requests as well as responses are transmitted in encrypted form and are protected against unauthorized access.

It can take some time to deal with your questions, so Medi24 cannot respond online to serious medical conditions or emergencies.

Regular training of our employees ensures that consultations are based on the most up-to-date medical techniques and knowledge. Scientific studies are used to evaluate our service quality.
