Many of our practices now offer eConsult – an online triage and consultation tool giving patients access to self-help advice, information and support from requesting a sick note remotely to online consultations with GPs to determine the medical advice and support they need.
South Wight Medical practice is one of a growing number of practices on the Island reaping the benefits for both its staff and its patients. Dr Margarita Kitova-John said: “It’s easy for patients to use and it saves them time! They simply log onto our website and follow the simple online instructions which will then divert them to the support they need. It’s meant that we can save on GP time for things like sick notes, which can then be used for those who need a face-face appointment instead.”
