e-Consultation

e-con

An e-Consultation is a secure online consultation between a clinician and patient. It is an emerging technology that offers an alternative method of delivering care. 

The use of e-Consultation for remote consultations across the NHS is increasing and this is being encouraged nationally. In light of this we will start trialling e-consultations in the near future. Services piloting the software are IAPT, Integrated Sexual Health and Rise Primary Mental Health Team.

If you would like further information on this pilot please contact communications@covwarkpt.nhs.uk or see this information sheet from NHS England.

If you are going to be part of the pilot, then please see this information sheet, which explains exactly what will happen:
