An alternative way to get a consulation with your GP

NHS England is supporting local GP practices to offer Online Consultations. These are an alternative way for patients and carers to have a consultation with their practice.

Using a computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone; patients and carers will get the appropriate response from the most relevant member of the general practice team including a GP to get a prescription, a referral to a hospital or clinic, advice on how to manage symptoms or signposting to another service. If necessary, an appointment will be made for you to come into the surgery.

Online Consultations are designed to be an alternative, quicker, easier and more convenient service for those who can’t get to their practice or who don’t want to wait for the next available appointment.

This should also help GP practices to reach more patients and manage appointments more effectively.

Lots of people are already using their practice websites to make an appointment, get test results, order a repeat prescription or to view their summary records, so this is a simply a further service being made available to current systems.

We want to find out what the public think about Online consultations.

Theshort survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete and we would really like to hear what you think.

The survey is open from Tuesday 8 May and closes on Friday 15 June 2018.

Humber Acute Services Review – Update

22 March 2018

The Review Steering Group has today published an Issues Paper to support public, patient and staff engagement in the work of the review. The purpose of this document is to set out some of the big challenges the NHS and other health and care bodies in the Humber area are facing. It describes some of the work that NHS bodies, local Councils and other health and care organisations are doing in partnership to help improve local heath and care services.

The Issues Paper is not a formal consultation document. It has been produced in order to start a conversation with local people, staff and other interested parties. The partners involved in conducting the review want to ensure we have many ways to listen to views and experiences from a range of patients, carers, staff groups, clinicians, community groups and other organisations.

We hope, through this issues paper, to highlight some of the really difficult challenges that our local health and care system is facing in the Humber area and welcome thoughts and ideas about how best to respond to them from a wide range of people.

You can read the issues paper on our website or request a paper copy via the contact details below.

To provide your feedback and ideas, you can contact us or fill out an online survey.
