E-Consult

 

E-Consult enables NHS based GP practices to offer online consultations to their patients. This allows patients to submit their symptoms or requests to their own GP electronically and offers around the clock NHS self-help information, signposting to services, and a symptom checker.

Blundellsands Surgery have now introduced the use of E-Consult for our patients. The benefits of using this service are:

  • Patients may not need a trip to the surgery and their query may be resolved with a phone call.

  • Medical advice is available 24/7 even when the practice is closed – Patients can check their health symptoms online and receive on the spot medical advice and treatment guidance thanks to NHS Choices content.

  • Patients will get a response from us by the end of the next working day or sooner.

  • Access wherever and whenever patients want from any device. Unlike a telephone call patients can complete an eConsult at a pace that suits them, without taking up practice time.

  • Patients can request sick notes and test results without the need for an appointment saving patient and practice time.

You can access this service by clicking the pop-up banner at the bottom of the screen that says 'Contact your Doctors Online'.

E-Consult Updates:

- We have introduced the use of E-Consult for suspected Urinary Tract Infections (Rather than bringing a Urine sample into the surgery, we are asking our patients to first complete a E-Consult for their symptoms - This will then be reviewed by our GP's and you will be contacted).

- We have introduced the use of E-Consult for chronic disease reviews. (You may receive a text message from us asking you to follow a link to E-Consult to ask you a few questions regarding your Chronic Disease management - This will then be reviewed by our Practice Nurses and you will be contacted to inform you if you require a follow-up appointment).
