eConsult has several functions:- It can help you with self diagnosis using its symptom checker and gives detailed self-help information; it can help you determine the most appropriate place to go seek help, which may be your local pharmacy or the national 111 help line; and it provides a mechanism to submit a secure eConsult direct to the GP 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This means you don't have to wait for the practice to open to submit an eConsult, it can be done anytime including evenings and weekends to beat the morning rush. The practice will then reply by the end of the next working day.
