The ability to triage patients using an online consultation system is critical during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
eConsult is the first online consultation service to be integrated with the NHS App. It makes form-based remote consultations available at around a quarter of practices in England. Patients can use this forms-based service to request GP advice without the need to book an appointment or contact your practice face-to-face or by telephone.
