You can now book appointments and request repeat prescriptions at a time convenient to you, thanks to GP online services.
To register for GP online services use the ‘REGISTER WITH PATIENT ACCESS’ tab on our website or drop in and ask us, or to find out more visit the NHS Choices website at www.nhs.uk/GPonlineservices
These services enables you to book GP appointments and request repeat prescriptions via your computer, smartphone or tablet at a time that suits you rather than calling or visiting the surgery.
This can save you a phone call or journey to the surgery, and allows you to do what you need to when the surgery is closed. If you are living with a long term health condition you can also benefit by having a greater involvement in your healthcare as you can access test results and keep track of your treatment. All patient information is kept securely.
This service works alongside traditional methods of accessing services. By allowing people who want to make appointments and order prescriptions this way, it should become easier for others to get through on the phone to the surgery during busy periods.
If you want to access GP online services you will need to fill out a form at the surgery and show two forms of ID one of which should have a photo (such as a UK passport or driving licence) and the other should have your address (such as a council tax bill).
Automatic uploads of Summary Care Record information
We are to enable automated uploads of any changes made to their patients Summary Care Record (SCR) on a daily basis.
Your Summary Care Record will provide key information about medication you may be taking, and any medication that you have a recorded allergy or adverse reaction towards. This information will only be provided to clinical staff treating you that do not have access to your full medical record. ***Please note that automatic SCR uploads will not be provided for patients who have chosen to opt-out of SCR ***
