Engage Consult allows patients and carers to connect with their GP practice and access services online from a PC, tablet or smartphone.
It can be used to book appointments, order repeat prescriptions and have an online consultation.
This app is currently under reassessment for Data Protection following changes introduced by GDPR.
Who is it suitable for?
Engage Consult is suitable for anyone as long as their GP surgery offers the service.
How does it work?
Patients and carers can access the Engage Consult application directly from the websites of participating GP practices to:
- Book an appointment
- Order a repeat prescription
- Get self-care information
- Have an online consultation that involves answering simple questions about symptoms. A report is then sent to the GP, who can follow up with the best course of action – for example, seeing the patient, phoning with advice or giving a prescription
How do I access it?
