What is Econsult?
Our Econsult service allows you to quickly and easily get professional advice for your symptoms or medication without even having to attend the surgery.
We offer online consultations only to patients over the age of 18 in the UK, but you can also get immediate self-help advice, and find out what other services can help you.
What is an online consultation?
This is when you send us a completed web form about a condition from the website. You can choose from a wide variety of common conditions, but if you are not sure what your symptoms mean, then you can request general advice. You can also request administrative help for test results, sick notes, referrals, and medical reports. We then ring you back (and in some cases email you) by the end of the next working day to offer you advice, tell you whether you need an appointment or telephone call with a clinician, or offer you a prescription.
