eConsult

We offer eConsult to allow patients to get medical help without making an appointment or calling the practice. With this tool, you can:

  • self-check your symptoms and find medical guidance written by doctors 24/7
  • get administrative help (e.g. a medical certificate or letter from the surgery)
  • seek medical advice from our doctors at the surgery

Please note the following important information:

  • This is only for patients registered with our practice
  • It is not an appropriate route to seek urgent medical help
  • It is not a bypass or shortcut for requesting routine GP appointments
  • Where a response has been requested, we aim to respond by the end of the next working either by email (don’t forget to check your junk email folder) or with a phone call, as appropriate to your consultation
  • The eConsult tool works best for issues that we can resolve – or start to resolve – online, for example by generating a script, arranging a blood test etc. There will be some problems where the appropriate next step is for you to see or speak to a GP routinely, in which case we will advise you by email or text to make an appointment. All information about booking a face to face appointment is here.
