In Devon, a revolution in General Practice

In Devon, a “revolution in General Practice” is taking place. The eConsult team, providers of the number 1 online consultation platform, are proud to be mobilising the entire North, East and West Devon CCG.

Over 600,000 patients now have access to the service across Devon and that number grows each week. We expect that 1.2million patients will have access by the end of this year as all practices sign up, giving patients the ability to get advice from, and consult online with, their own NHS GP, 24/7.

This has been really exciting project rolling out an NHS digital solution at scale with a truly pioneering and enterprising CCG.

And for next steps? Bring the wider system together and digitally link primary, urgent and emergency care, getting patients across Devon to the right place at the right time for their needs, enhancing access, improving outcomes and taking pressure off the system.
