Scottish Health Boards turn to Consultant Connect

Three Scottish Health Boards are using Consultant Connect, technology that is enabling GPs to access the advice and guidance they need by connecting them to consultants in a range of specialties.

Health Boards in Greater Glasgow & Clyde, Lanarkshire and Tayside are using the system to help alleviate pressures on hospitals and speed up care for patients. Patients who need to be referred to specialised care are sent straight away to the correct department, helping to improve the patient experience.

Through Consultant Connect, there are over 40 rapid clinical advice lines available, including the mental health assessment unit line in Glasgow, and the Covid treatment enquiry patient-initiated follow-up (PIFU) line in Tayside.

The more than 70,000 calls placed by clinicians to specialists meant that one in four patients were able to avoid an unnecessary trip to hospital. As a result, more than 17,000 patients were also able to avoid being admitted unnecessarily or left anxiously waiting for a referral.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please email us at or call us on 01865 261 467.
