What is Patient Online?
Patient Online services will give you the option to:
- Make appointments online
- Order REPEAT prescriptions online
- View your own medical record online
You will be able to complete these actions using a computer, tablet or smartphone rather than having to phone or visit your practice.
What are the benefits of online services?
Online services will allow you to book and cancel appointments or request REPEAT prescriptions at a time that is convenient to you – day or night. It can also mean not having to travel to the surgery and can free up phone lines for people without access to a computer.
Having access to records means, that you could be more in control of your health and well-being. This is particularly helpful for people who live with a long-term condition such as Diabetes that needs regular monitoring and frequent prescriptions.
Practices have found that online access helps to manage appointments and telephone calls more efficiently and patients find it convenient and accessible.
How can I get access to my GP Record?
You will need to fill in a short form and bring proof of your identity to the surgery so that we can provide you with logon details and with a password.
Please speak to a member of the reception team and ask for a consent form or download a form from here.
