What is eConsult?

eConsult is a clever bit of software that allows you to quickly and safely get help and advice from your own doctors
and GP practice online, for free, from anywhere.

eConsult is a form-based online consultation platform the collects your medical or administrative request and sends it through to your GP practice to triage and decide on the right care for you and everyone else.

Stay home, stay safe, but don’t ignore your healthcare. Submit an eConsultation so
your doctors can help you.

Why use eConsult

  • Community

    By submitting an eConsult your doctors can make sure every patient gets the right care, saving appointments for those that need them. If you can use eConsult it means you free up the phone line for those who are not able to use the internet.

  • Reassurance

    We don’t always know what is wrong with us, which is why we go to the doctors. By submitting an eConsult you give you doctors all the information they need to decide on the right care for you and your family.

  • Speed/Access

    eConsult is available to use any time, day or night, from any device connected to the internet. There is no need to wait in a phone queue or visit the practice. It takes just 3-4 minutes to complete an eConsult and your practice will get back to you within 1 working day, if not sooner.

Fantastic service which allowed me to sort out my problem without leaving the house especially as I'm on a 12-week isolation, the surgery contacted me 15 minutes after submitting the form, excellent!

Christine Dawkins, Facebook

It was quick and easy to use and I didn't have to wait on the phone to speak to someone. It was very convenient as you can do it at any time of the day.

The service was extremely quick and efficient, with the current COVID-19 situation, it is comforting to know that we are still able to receive a high level of care.
