How eConsult has transformed patient care and staff well-being in an NHS practice

Why you should read this article: • To appreciate the changes that eConsult can bring to the staff and patient experience • To understand how eConsult can enhance patient care and ease staff workload • To reflect on how digital care delivery needs to reflect patient preference and accessibility A complete telephone triaging model was introduced at Hillview Surgery in London as the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown began, enabling doctors, nurses and clinical pharmacists to treat more patients through telephone and video consultations, and reducing the number of face-to-face consultations and home visits.

The authors report on their experiences of using these new systems and their benefits for patients and staff.
