What is Patient Access?
With Patient Access, you can now view, book and cancel appointments at your local GP surgery from home, work or on the move — wherever you can connect to the internet. What is more, because Patient Access is a 24 hour online service you can do this in your own time, day or night.
Plus, Patient Access is not just for booking GP appointments, you can also:
- Order repeat prescriptions.
- Change your address details.
- Send secure messages to your practice.
- View your medical record securely online
To register for this service, you will need to come into the practice with Photo ID (passport, driving licence etc) and request your registration details for Patient Access. Once we have checked your details and you have signed our Terms & Conditions we will supply you with a letter containing your login codes and a pin. You can then register by clicking here
Please note we will be phasing out our repeat prescription service on our website and encourage our patients to use Patient Access to order their medication. This is because Patient Access has a direct link to our clinical system and therefore your medical record. This method will reduce the possibilities of prescribing errors and will improve the service we offer. If you don’t currently order your prescriptions online but have access to the Internet it would be worthwhile signing up for Patient Access!
Is my information secure?
All information that is sent to our surgery via Patient Access is secure. Your personal details are encrypted and protected using the highest standard internet security, so it cannot be intercepted. Only you and your GP surgery are able to see this information.
Please remember to bring your photo ID when you come to the practice to register for this service as we can not activate your Patient Access account without it!
