GP online services allow you to access a range of services via your computer, smartphone or tablet. Once you have signed up, you will be able to:
- book or cancel appointments online
- renew or order repeat prescriptions online
- view parts of your GP record, including information about medication, allergies, vaccinations, previous illnesses and test results
You can still contact the practice by phone or in person, this is just another option, which other patients have found is more convenient and saves them time. More information including “how to” leaflets and videos of patients and why they are using GP online services are available at www.nhs.uk/gponlineservices
How to sign-up
For more information, please contact reception or next time you visit the surgery, bring with you a piece of photo ID (passport, driving licence) and something with your address on like a bank statement but not a gas or electric bill. If you don’t have these, please talk to us and we will help you sign-up.
A new guide is available for patients who need to give another person, such as their carer, access to their GP online services. It explains the benefits and shows patients how to do this.
The guide, called Giving another person access to your GP online services (black and white) / Giving another person access to your GP online services (colour), is available to download and print.
