There's more information about the eHub approach in this case study from NHS England. The 20 practices in Brent CCG came together to establish a single online point of access for patients. 

Practices have found that the eHub is able to conclude around 75% of online consultations remotely, reducing the need for face to face appointments. Initial patient feedback has been positive, with some patients noting that they found the service to be more efficient and easier to access.
