“We are clinically led”

In 2014, four innovative GP Partners at the Hurley Group in South East London pioneered the delivery of the first online consultation. They wanted technology to help them work smarter and quickly grew to become the NHS’s leading online consultation provider. Since 2017 they have been developing a future blueprint for the delivery of healthcare through a digital-first model.

Having worked in NHS, I was privy to the internal pressures that Primary Care and Secondary Care was under. Being someone who took pride in their role and really wanted to make a difference in the Practice I always went the extra mile for Patients and Staff and looked at different ways to improve the access and efficiency within my Practice. Working at eConsult with an amazing Team has allowed me to explore that with the help of Technology and the determination of NHS Team, change for the better can happen - easier access and quicker treatment as well as empowerment to Patients can exist within this already pressured Healthcare system.

Michael Moc, Account Manager

I have had the pleasure of working with eConsult for 4 years, and I have been privileged to see the company grow from an office that seated 4 people to now over 40 members of staff. eConsult has given me the opportunity to excel in my knowledge and skills to the point where I now manage a team.

Dipali Jani, Operations Manager

"Having graduated with a BSc in Biomedical Sciences, I have come to, not only love the field of health sciences, but acquire a deeper appreciation of the significance of our work here at eConsult. Having taught at a primary school for 3 years, I decided to move to eConsult and it has been an amazing transition, whereby I can now positively impact the lives of people in the healthcare sector."

“Here to tell you about what we do.”

We have a dedicated marketing team who work across eConsult as well as assisting with marketing collateral for customers.

For all press enquiries, case studies or approved marketing materials please get in touch.

What drew me to eConsult was the fact that we came from within the NHS, saw an opportunity to make life a little easier for patients and people working in the NHS, and decided to do something about it. You explain what we're trying to achieve to your friends and it just seems so logical - why shouldn't you be able to use technology to make accessing care from the NHS easier? We want to help patients to get the right care, so they don't waste their time, but also preserve stretched NHS resources.

Irene Reguilon, Marketing Manager

Having been working at eConsult for only 6 months I already feel part of the family. With no experience in the industry coming into the role, eConsult has opened my eyes to how the NHS works across primary and urgent care. Our healthcare is an integral part of our lives and I love being part of a team that is working to improve and innovate it. No day is the same and I look forward to seeing where we will be in 6 more months.
