New ways to consult your GP practice

The NHS ambition is to embrace technology as part of its drive to offer modern, convenient and responsive services to patients, their families and carers. GP practices are leading the way. Today, the majority of GP practices already offer these services.

We are introducing a range of innovative new services at GP practices across Sunderland.

  • eConsult – an online consultation tool
  • Telephone consultations
  • Group consultations
  • Patient online
  • Apps for health conditions myCOPD/myHeart
  • Appointment reminder text service

Patients can now consult with their GP online, over the telephone, via video consultation or attend a group consultation for illnesses such as diabetes or COPD. Patients can also download apps that can help monitor and manage specific health conditions.
