Patient Access – online patient services
The Practice offers a number of services online. If you wish to, you can:
- Book appointments on line
- Request repeat prescriptions
- View elements of your medical record
The elements of your medical record that are currently available for you to view are:
- Medications – current and past
- Test results
In addition, you may also apply to view:
- Consultations (detailed coded information only)
Evidence shows that patients who are informed and involved in their own care have better health outcomes and are less likely to be admitted to hospital. By having access to your medical record online you will be empowered to take greater control of your health and wellbeing.
How to Register for Patient Access
To use the online services you will first need to register to use them. It is very important that only genuine patients are granted internet access and therefore you will be required to complete an application form and show us proof of ID. Please note to apply for this service you must be over 16 years old.
You can either print out an application form (link below) or come into the surgery and pick one up. Once completed, you will need to return the form to Reception, along with proof of ID. You will then be provided with a Registration letter informing you of your login information so that you can set up your account.
Patient Access application form
If you have already registered for online access for booking appointments and/or requesting repeat prescriptions you will now be able to see medications, allergies, immunisations and test results. YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE A SEPARATE REGISTRATION REQUEST TO VIEW THE DETAILED CODED INFORMATION IN YOUR CONSULTATIONS.
If you are interested in being able to look at your medical records online, please read the following documents before making an application for access:
NHS England Patient Information Leaflet - 'It's Your Choice'
