What is Patient Access?
With Patient Access, you can now access your local GP services at home, work or on the move — wherever you can connect to the internet. What’s more, because Patient Access is a 24 hour online service you can do this in your own time, day or night.
- Book an appointment
- Order repeat prescriptions
- Change your address details
- Send secure messages to your practice
Please note: your local practice may not offer every Patient Access feature. Ask at your surgery to find out which are available to you.
By 31 March 2015, practices in England are required to give patients online access to appointment booking, ordering repeat prescriptions and a summary view of their medical record – medications, allergies and adverse reactions.
Are you registered to do this?
If not please ask at reception for more details and complete a form so we can give you this access.
