Coming 28th March 2023:

We’re pleased to announce that 08 28th March 2023 we will be going live to a new online consultation tool called PATCHS.

This will replace the current e consult service.

The new online consultation service offers a secure, simple, and flexible way for patients and carers to contact their GP practice.

Access is via our website you can either create as account, login via the NHS app or submit a request without creating an account.

By registering you will have easy access to a range of services from your computer or smartphone, including:

  • Anything non-urgent that you need to contact us for:
  • GP consultations
  • Fit/sick note
  • Health advice
  • Access to any of our services/health professionals

Why should you use PATCHS?

  • Convenient and quicker than using the telephone
  • You can submit requests on behalf of someone you care for
  • Getting quicker responses for admin queries
  • Frees up our telephone lines for people that cannot use PATCHS
  • Creates more time for admin staff to deal with patient enquiries
  • Ensures we can more easily prioritise requests based on clinical urgency
