A change to our eConsult hours

Posted on October 27th, 2021

Please be aware that during November we will be trialling switching off the eConsult service over the weekend.

This will begin on the 1st November until further notice.

The service will be switched off from 6.30pm on a Friday and will resume at 8am on the Monday. During the week, you will still be able to submit eConsults throughout the day Monday-Friday and in the evenings Monday-Thursday.

The reason for this change is that we are aware there has been an increased waiting time for eConsults to be reviewed by a clinician. We have also noticed that some eConsults submitted over the weekend are no longer required as patients have used other services over the weekend, this in turn can lead to wasted appointments.

We hope by switching the service off over the weekend it will help us to manage demand and allow us to offer appointments within an appropriate time frame ensuring we can offer the best service possible to our patients.

Although eConsult will be turned off over the weekend you can still access non-urgent medical attention by attending a pharmacy, local walk in centres or by contacting NHS111
