The webGP service was developed by NHS GPs to transform patients' access to healthcare.

We don't just believe in giving patients convenient, online access to healthcare. We believe it's vital to do so within existing patient-doctor relationships. That's why our set of online tools are focused on building the capability of local GP practice websites.

We are fully CQC approved and are now serving over 130,000 patients across London. Say hello to find out how we increase your patient access, whilst freeing-up GP time for patients with the most complex needs.

This project has the rare potential to both significantly enhance the quality of healthcare provision and at the same time reduce costs. It improves patient's understanding of their healthcare and at the same time facilitates the health professionals in delivering that care more efficiently.

Dr David Stables, co-founder, EMIS

Resolved my issue quickly without needing a face-to-face appointment and wasting time - either mine or that of the doctor.

Patient testimonial, February 2014

Excellent service... a great time saver for both the doctor and me.
