Medical Assistance UK MEDICAL HELPLINE provides general information about anything that is related to health. However we do not give advice on paediatric injuries or medical conditions


Paediatric medicine is a highly complex and specialist area of expertise.  Childhood illnesses and injuries can be very problematical.  Diagnosing a medical condition or an injury in a child can be difficult for a number of reasons including the fact that children often have difficulty in describing their symptoms and/or may show symptoms that are sometimes different to adults.  In addition, children can become unwell extremely quickly - and also get better (or deteriorate) very rapidly.  Therefore, if a CHILD has a medical condition or injury, our advice is make sure that the child is seen quickly by a doctor - using an NHS 999 ambulance if you feel that the situation is urgent.

When you use the MAUK telephone helpline you will initially be asked a few basic questions to verify that you are an MAUK member (and entitled to use the service) and also to confirm that we are speaking to YOU  

As healthcare professionals we believe in strict patient confidentiality and we do not want to disclose any private details about you to anybody else.

Medical Assistance UK helpline personnel are able to answer the majority of health related questions very quickly using our team of experienced healthcare professionals.  In addition, we are also able to use various databases (and other resources) so we will always be able to give you the most up-to-date information, based on the latest evidence based research, when you call us.  Your enquiry will be handled promptly and efficiently.  

The Medical Assistance UK medical helpline can help with a wide range of health related questions and problems.  In addition, if you want to use any of our services, our helpline personnel will ask our operational personnel to visit you in your home or, in some cases, your workplace.

Please note that Medical Assistance UK Ltd is not an Emergency Service so, if you have a
serious injury or condition, please telephone 999 and ask for an Ambulance
