Produced with the Northgate Village Surgery Patient Participation Group (PPG).

Consult with your GP online - 'eConsult'
We now have a new service which allows you to get specific self-help information, log queries with our administration team, and get advice from your GP without needing an appointment!
You will be asked to complete an online questionnaire about your symptoms, and this will be passed on to either your preferred GP or the Duty Doctor, depending on the nature of your problem. We will then contact you with advice, a prescription, or to book an appointment if it is required.
