Using online services gives you another way of requesting services or getting advice and information. Many patients find that that this is more convenient and saves time. Find out more about GP online services on the NHS website. This includes more information including “how to” leaflets and videos of patients and why they are using GP online services.
You can still contact the practice by phone or visit if you prefer.
There are three different online services.
Appointments are accessed by using the online econsult box between 08:00 – 18:30 on all working days. For medical queries the information you provide will be triaged by a doctor within 1 working day, often within a much shorter period of time, and actioned appropriately. Triage enables our team to offer the most appropriate care to a patient based on the nature of your request, which may not necessarily be a GP, and with the right level of urgency. You may be asked for more information or offered an appointment within a very short turnaround time so please keep your phone with you.
You can also use eConsult for:
- Requesting a sick note (fit note) or other administrative queries
- Requesting medical reports
- Ask a question about your medication
- Making other requests for documentation and paperwork
- Completing a health review, if asked to do so by the surgery, for long term conditions (such as asthma, blood pressure, diabetes or thyroid), medication or contraception.
Our Patient Online Service allows you to
- Order repeat prescriptions
- Change your contact details
- Look at your summary health record, including information about medications, known allergies and vaccinations.
- View your test results (if the GP agrees)
