Can you help?

NHS England is supporting local GP practices to offer Online Consultations – an alternative way for patients and carers to have a consultation with their practice.

Online Consultations are designed to be an alternative, quicker, easier and more convenient service for those who can’t get to their practice or who don’t want to wait for the next available appointment.

This should also help GP practices to reach more patients and manage appointments more effectively.

Lots of people are already using their practice websites to make an appointment, get test results, order a repeat prescription or to view their summary records, so this is a simply a further service being made available to current systems.

But what do you think?

This short survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete and we would really like to hear what you think. The survey is open from Tuesday 8 May and closes on Friday 15 June 2018.  

Take the survey now!
