New Messaging Facility & e-Consult service

Posted by: darrenlodge - Posted on:

We have recently moved the text messaging facility and electronic consulting service to a new service called PATCHS.  Text messages and emails we send you will now be from PATCHS.


Fill in the PATCHS and one of our team will be in touch with you within 48 hours.

What is PATCHS?

PATCHS is an online consultation service that allows you to access GP services quickly and easily.  You can also see responses we make to you by email and text message.

Answer 4 simple questions and PATCHS will get you the help you need.

We limit the number of requests that can be made per day.  Once these are used PATCHS will be closed, details of when the next request can be sent through are displayed on Patchs. To find out more about why PATCHS is unavailable for requests visit here.

You can register for PATCHS via our website. You’ll be asked to enter your email address and set a password.

Once you have registered, you can access PATCHS from our website or opening the PATCHS web app on your smartphone.
Choose the appropriate option and answer a few simple questions to help us to understand your issue.
Our team will review your answers and will respond as quickly as possible.
Initial responses will be via online message or telephone.
Face-to-face or video consultations will be booked if required.

What do I do next?

We would like all patients to register and log in to their own PATCHS account as soon as possible.
