NHS England is using technology to empower patients and make it easier for clinicians to deliver high quality care and enabling patients to seamlessly navigate the service as part of its digital transformation strategy. The Online Consultation programme is a contribution towards this ambition.

As part of the General Practice Forward View, a £45 million fund has been created to contribute towards the costs for practices to purchase online consultation systems, improving access and making best use of clinicians’ time.

This funding is part of the General Practice Development Programme building capacity for improvement through free training, spreading innovations from around to country using the 10 High Impact Actions and funding for new ways of working.
