New online consultation service launching on 15th July 2022
We’re pleased to announce that we will be launching a new online consultation tool called PATCHS on 15th July 2022. We have selected PATCHS to take the place of our current online consultation service (eConsult) to improve the experience for our patients.
The new online consultation service offers a secure, simple and flexible way for patients and carers to contact their GP practice – it will not replace face to face appointments, it is in addition to routine contact with Practices. This should not be used for emergencies when you should contact 999 or visit A&E.
By registering you will have easy access to a range of services from your computer or smartphone, including:
- booking virtual appointments
- accessing health advice
- reporting symptoms to your GP
To request repeat prescriptions, you should continue to follow the current process we have in place.
You can register via this link
All you will need to do is provide an email address and set up a password.
For more information on PATCHS you can visit their website.
To enable you to continue to access online consultations, you can register now but the service will not go live until Friday, 15th July 2022. Please continue to use eConsult until then.
