How it Works
eConsult is easy for patients and practices.
eConsult lets patients consult with their own NHS GP online by completing a quick form that is sent and reviewed by the practice. We can also direct the patient to self-help, physiotherapy, pharmacy advice and local self-referral services. Patients can request sick notes, travel vaccine information and request follow up appointments.
You’ll wonder how you did without it…
It takes GPs only 2-3 minutes to process an eConsult, and research shows that 70% of requests are closed without the need for a face-to-face appointment, saving both patients and GP’s time. Patients can get NHS based help via eConsult anytime, even outside of surgery hours. Patients will receive a response by 18:30 the following day.
Patients are safe. Your data is secure. Our Clinical Governance Board ensures a robust red flagging system is applied to every patient request. We are fully compliant and use the highest security standards to ensure patients’ data is always secure.
