eConsult is a platform that allows patients to consult with their own NHS GP simply by completing a quick online form. It helps GPs to deliver better access to registered NHS patients by providing a round-the-clock portal where patients can enter their symptoms and receive instant self-help advice, together with signposting to NHS 111, pharmacies and other healthcare services. With eConsult patients are able to have their symptoms remotely assessed by their own family GP without the need to visit the surgery in person, negating the need to take time off work or use precious holiday days for the sake of a 10-minute consultation. To access the service go to our website www.warehamsurgery.nhs.uk and click on GET STARTED. We aim to provide a response by the end of the next working day.
