e-consult allows patients to safely contact their GP surgery anytime without having to come into the practice. eConsult collects all the details your GP surgery needs to decide on the right care for you and you will receive a response by the end of the next working day.

Keep yourself, and your practice staff safe and use eConsult. Start an online consultation via our website or https://lymebaymedicalpractice.webgp.com/

How does the service work?
* Complete a simple form about your problem or request
* Your GP’s/ NP’s decide on the best treatment for you

There are 4 tabs on e-Consult to access advice:

Lyme Bay is a friendly practice situated in the coastal town of Lyme Regis on Dorset’s famous and beautiful Jurassic Coast. We offer both NHS Medical and Dental services across two sites close to the town and aim to provide traditional patient centred care to young and old alike.

Our premises offer parking and full disabled access including being sited on main bus routes. Our Practice is part of an integrated community team for the area which provides locally based intermediate care, community nursing, physiotherapy and occupational therapy. We also provide additional physical and mental health services in the form of consultant outpatient clinics and therapy and work closely with our colleagues in West Dorset to deliver as much care as close to home as is safely possible.

We work closely with our patient group and community and aspire to deliver holistic modern care at all times.


We are having to make changes daily and the decision we have made along with a number of Dorset practices is that we will whenever possible be moving all appointments already arranged and any future ones over to telephone consultations including triage and if after discussing with a clinician they need to see you for assessment they will make the necessary arrangements for that. This keeps our patients and staff safe and well for longer.

If you have an appointment arranged, please do not attend the surgery before contacting us.

Whenever possible contact us via email prescriptions.lyme@dorsetgp.nhs.uk or administrator.lyme@dorsetgp.nhs.uk
or via an online forms from our practice website
