GP online services allow you to access a range of services via your computer or mobile device. Once you have signed up to the service, you will be able to:
- book or cancel appointments online with a GP or nurse
- renew or order repeat prescriptions online
- view parts of your GP health record, including information about medication, allergies, vaccinations, previous illnesses and test results
The service is free. Everyone who is registered with a GP can have access to their practice's online services. It is quick and easy to use, anywhere and at anytime. It is secure and only available to patients who signed up for it and received their log-in details.
If you want to register for 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). If you don’t have photo ID or anything with your address on it, it doesn’t mean you will not be able to use online services, our practice staff may be able to help.
To register for GP online services, drop in and ask your GP practice, or to find out more visit the NHS Choices website at www.nhs.uk/GPonlineservices
