An alternative way to have a consultation from your GP – survey now open for your views

NHS England is seeking views from GPs, practice teams and members of the public on what people think about the idea of online consultations so it can improve the service and increase the availability and use.

Online Consultations are a way for patients to contact their GP practice without having to wait on the phone or take time out to come into the practice. Using a smartphone, tablet or computer, you can contact your practice about a new problem or an ongoing issue.

It doesn’t matter if you have not used Online Consultations yourself – your views are still of interest to the NHS.

NHS England has developed a short, online survey for patients to share their views. Surveys close on Friday 15 June 2018.
