We use eConsult for Urgent Issues where your condition needs to be reviewed that day.
- The eConsult form provides the clinician with information relevant to your condition, and helps them to assess your problem more quickly.
- They can often respond to you by text or email, but they may also need to talk to you or have a face to face consultation. (For patients under 18, the clinician will respond by phone or invite them in for a face to face consultation).
When using eConsult please ensure you are available to speak to the clinician or you can come into the practice for a face to face appointment that day if requested.
eConsult also provides you with Self Help information, information on how a community pharmacist can often help with minor illnesses in the first instances, and provides details on how to self refer to many external services such as Physio, Mental Health etc
