eConsult is a clever bit of software that allows you to quickly and safely get help and advice from us at and provided on the NHS, from anywhere during our usual opening hours. Please remember for life threatening illness or injury you should always still call 999.
How does eConsult Work ?
- Need advice for your condition, want to help yourself or have an admin request ?
Go to Consult your Doctor Online, then select the relevant site you are registered at (please note Abbotswood patients will be registered under Leap Valley Surgery)
- Every eConsult will be reviewed by our staff. This may be clinical or admin staff depending on your request.
You may not need to see the GP but another healthcare professional. You will have a response by the end of the next working day.
- This may be a face to face appointment, call back, or prescription or treatment advice.
