GP Response is a service for general practitioners who need answers to current or anticipated issues around patient care. This could include administrative and operational matters which require an individual response. It is not intended to replace clinician-to-clinician contacts or other direct service contacts over specific issues.
Please use your NHS Mail account only to send the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- Your name and practice
- Your patient’s name
- Patient’s date of birth
- Patient’s NHS number
- The issue you wish to raise
We aim to answer any inquiries within no more than 10 working days.
NHSmail accounts (i.e. an email ending @nhs.net) are accredited to government OFFICIAL status for sharing patient identifiable and sensitive information, meaning it meets a set of information security controls that offer an appropriate level of protection against loss or inappropriate access.
