eConsult is the most widely used online consultation platform used in the NHS. eConsult can be accessed from your own NHS GP practice website. eConsult collects the information about your request and sends it to the GP practice. The GP practice staff will then triage (sort) each patient so that everyone gets the right care as quickly and as safely as possible.
