  • eConsults: submitted over the weekend will be dealt with on the following Monday.
  • eConsult allows you to fill out a simple form so our team can review the information you provide and make sure the right person assists you as soon as possible. You can ask about common issues, general symptoms, request sick notes and ask for test results.

Depending on your request, we may respond online or may arrange a telephone or video consultation for you.

eConsult is safe and secure. Requests can only be submitted by the patient themselves or parents of children, so you’ll also be asked to confirm who you are before filling out the form.
