2. Use the right service:
New mobile application enables patients to interact with a virtual healthcare assistant called Olivia. She asks a series of questions to assess your symptoms in a clinically safe way, using NICE accredited evidence based protocol. Olivia will then recommend the most appropriate onward care which includes self care advice via NHS choices, book an appropriate GP appointment, or book a GP call back.
A transcript of the questions and answers will be sent to the practice helping the doctor to make the consultation more efficient and effective for both you and the GP.

The reception team will offer this service to our patients. If you have a smartphone tablet or laptop & would like to use this service the reception team will then send you a text with a link to go to the website and create an account.
The face to face consultation will be by using the camera on your device.
