NHS Wales Informatics Service (NWIS) has enabled GPs and GP practice staff in Wales access to an app that connects users with specialist healthcare professionals when advice about complex patient care is needed.
Consultant Connect is a clinician-to-clinician service funded by Welsh Government that provides GPs with access to a broad range of experts and specialists across a range of therapy areas. NWIS has enabled the service’s icon on the desktop of all GPs and practice staff so they can quickly and easily access the app’s functionality whenever additional healthcare advice is required.
The app will automatically link to the practice’s local service directory, where a dial-in number and a list of specialities available for consultation are stored. Consultant Connect is currently available in all health boards except Aneurin Bevan.
If you are a GP using the service and are having issues with your desktop icon, then please log a call with the Primary Care service desk via firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are having any other issues with the service itself, please email email@example.com or call 018765261467
