Patchs is an online consultation service that helps you communicate with your GP more quickly. Answer a few simple questions and practice staff will respond to you by email, SMS, or via the NHS app. 

Your request is triaged by a specially trained team of experts in a centralised hub managed by Healthcare Central London, our GP Federation. All your information is handled confidentially, and any clinical decisions are reviewed by a trained healthcare professional. Your Practice is kept up-to-date with any requests or actions taken.
