Patient Online Access

Did you know the practrice offers online access to repeat prescriptions, appointment booking services  and summerised patient records with Patient Access?

We have now introduced a new service called Patient Online Access, for all of our patients aged 16 and over. This will be a new repeat prescription service which will (once you have registered) give you all your repeat medications when you log on, and all you will need to do is tick the box next to the items you require.

You can also now book routine appointments with the doctor online with Patient Access. To get access to this service you will need to register, once that process is complete you will be able to book and cancel appointments online. This service will only be available for routine appointments for the doctors and nurse and not the morning “open surgery system”. The option of booking by phone or in person will of course continue.
