You can still contact the practice by phone or in person, this is just another option, which other patients have found is more convenient and saves them time. More information including “how to” leaflets and videos of patients and why they are using GP online services are available at www.nhs.uk/gponlineservices
We offer a service called eConsult so people can raise non-urgent administrative and clinical queries with us. Note – these are NOT for urgent queries. They also are NOT for requesting routine repeat prescriptions (please use the NHS App for requesting your repeat medicines).
You can find useful info about the eConsult process here. Wherever possible please use the NHS App to access the eConsult service (go to the ‘Advice’ menu option, then ‘Ask your GP for Advice’). See this link which shows you where the eConsult section sits on the NHS App.
We aim to respond within two working days wherever possible. Once we have received your eConsult form, we will send you a text message or email notifying you of when we will respond.
