Welcome to The Beacon Health Group

The Partnership of Dr McAllister, Dr Plate, Dr Strickland and Dr Dollery

The Beacon Health Group Partnership operates over three sites, Danbury Medical Centre based in Danbury, Mountbatten House Surgery based in North Springfield and Moulsham Lodge Surgery based in central Chelmsford. 

 We are currently running 24 - 48 hours behind with the usual response times given on the econsult forms, particularly for responses to routine requests.  This is due to the increased demand which comes over the winter with the seasonal spike in infectious diseases.  We are working hard to correct this so please bear with us.  Please remember your local Pharmacy should be your first point of call with minor illnesses and infections, they can offer help and advice for adults and children.

The Essex Child Health App also offers very useful advice


From the 27th November all patients that need to submit a request to the Surgery are asked to use econsult, this includes routine and on the day appointments.  If you require on the day assistance for a child under 2 then please call the surgery.

eConsult is available between 8am and 12pm then 2pm and 4pm Monday to Friday 


eConsult allows patients to submit requests to their practice from anywhere they have an internet connection. Rather than booking an appointment, the patient sends their request or symptoms, and the GP practice will review and make sure every patient gets the right care. This might save you a trip into the practice. 

There are three ways to access and submit an eConsult:

  1. Through the eConsult banner below, on any device.
  2. Download and use the NHS App on your phone or tablet.
  3. Through the eConsult GP finder on the website https://econsult.net/nhs-patients

From there, all you have to do is complete a quick online questionnaire which is sent to your practice. Using this, your GP can quickly check your eConsult and advise you on the best next steps.

You can also search for trusted NHS self-help advice, complete administrative requests and give your GP updates about long-term conditions through eConsult.
