Online consultation service available via the NHS App

Online consultation is now available within the NHS App at around a quarter of GP practices with the integration of the eConsult service.

The ability to triage patients using an online consultation system is critical during the COVID-19 pandemic. Patients can use this forms-based service to request GP advice without booking an appointment. eConsult is set to be the first of many suppliers providing online consultation services within the NHS App, which acts as a platform for innovation and a front door to many different digital health services, offering patients choice and greater control of their health and care. Find out more about the NHS App here.
