WebGP or eConsult as it is sometimes known

The initial funding for this project was sourced from the CCG’s winter resilience money from 2015 as a one year subscription.  The CCG’s Locality Managers have spoken with the Practice Managers across Horsham and Mid Sussex surgeries who are using WebGP/eConsult, and the consensus of opinion is that usage has been less than expected and that, although the merits of using a web based tool are appreciated, it is not providing the value for money that was anticipated.

The CCG is therefore planning to terminate the contract in December and have advised that any future contracts with WebGP/eConsult, or another web based consultation service would need to be entered in to on a practice, or group of practices, basis.

Our surgery, currently, has no plans to do this and due staff shortages has already removed the facility.
