E-Consultant provides an online portal where patients can self-check their symptoms and receive on the spot medical advice 24/7, round-the-clock support and alternative treatment providers.
E-Consult is an online triage tool that enables GPs to conduct consultations more efficiently. You can have your symptoms remotely assessed by your own GP without the need to visit the surgery in person, negating the need to take time off work or use precious holidays for the sake of a 10 minute consultation.
