Want to improve your health and wellbeing?

Health Apps can make a big difference.  Dorset CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group) has partnered up with ORCHA (the Organisation for the Review of Care and Health Applications) to provide an apps  site for you all to do just this.  They have reviewed thousands of apps so you can find the best and safest.

Discover the best apps to improve your health on the website  ourdorset.nhs.uk/apps

The apps you will find here have had independent and impartial reviews, and you will see that the resultant information is clearly presented throughout. We can all be reassured that any apps shown on this site have undergone a rigorous review process, and feel confident as we choose the best app for us.

By bringing this information to our fingertips, it’s now possible to identify and compare the best apps for our needs – and to ensure that we, and our friends and families, can get access to quality assured apps.

 

eConsult

With the uncertainty surrounding Coronavirus looking likely to continue for the near future, we are asking our patients to consider using our online consultation platform, eConsult. This is a free service where you can submit a form online to receive help for new and ongoing non-urgent medical conditions and administrative help such as a sick note or a test result.

We know our phone lines can be busy in peak times. With eConsult, you can fill in and submit a form when it suits you. You are guaranteed to have heard from the surgery by the end of the following working day.

eConsult also has a comprehensive database of information on conditions to self-help and suggestions on over the counter medication.

In our most recent survey, 92% of users were satisfied with the eConsult and would recommend it to their friends and family.

To submit an eConsult and to access the medical conditions database, please go to our website, www.theblandfordgrouppractice.co.uk, and click on the eConsult tile on our homepage. The forms can be submitted from your phone and you can also submit them on behalf of your child if they under 18.
