Econsult is Available 24 Hours Per Day, 7 Days per Week!econsult

Econsult is Available 24 Hours Per Day, 7 Days per Week!

The practice is currently experiencing a large increase in the number of telephone calls that we receive each day. This is resulting in patients having to queue for longer on the phones. To help with this, we are asking as many patients as possible to use our E-Consult service.

To use this service, click on the banner above.

This allows you to send messages to the surgery from your laptop, smartphone, or PC at any time of the day or night, and it can be done 7 days per week. When the practice receives a message, a response will be sent within 2 working day (except when it is a bank holiday or when the practice is closed.)

You can send us prescription queries, requests for sick notes and any routine medical matter, or any admin queries.  A clinician will then look at your request, and respond  normally within 48 hours.



Fraudulent calls and text messages offering the COVID-19 vaccination.

We are aware that some patients are receiving fraudulent calls and text messages offering the COVID-19 vaccination. In some cases, people are asked to press a number on their keypad or to send a text message to confirm they wish to receive the vaccine. Doing so is likely to result in a charge being applied to their phone bill. In other cases, callers are offering the vaccine for a fee or asking for bank details. The vaccine is only available from the NHS and the NHS will contact you when it is your turn.

 

PLEASE CAN WE ASK THAT WHEN YOU ATTEND THE PRACTICE AT YOUR EXACT APPOINTMENT TIME, YOU ATTEND ALONE WHERE POSSIBLE, AND WEAR A FACEMASK. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE ONE WE CAN PROVIDE YOU WITH ONE WHEN YOU ATTEND. WE THANKYOU FOR YOUR CO-OPERTAION.
