If you wish to, you can now use the internet to book appointments with a GP, request repeat prescriptions for any medications you take regularly and look at your medical record online. You can also still use the telephone or call in to the surgery for any of these services as well. It’s your choice.
IT WILL BE NECESSARY TO COMPLETE AN APPLICATION FORM AND PRODUCE PHOTO ID AND PROOF OF RESIDENCE
Being able to see your record online might help you to manage your medical conditions. It also means that you can even access it from anywhere in the world should you require medical treatment on holiday. If you decide not to join or wish to withdraw, this is your choice and practice staff will continue to treat you in the same way as before. This decision will not affect the quality of your care.
You will be given login details, so you will need to think of a password which is unique to you. It will be necessary to go online and create your own unique account. This will ensure that only you are able to access your record – unless you choose to share your details with a family member or carer.
Try the New NHS App
If you’re a patient at our practice you can now use the new NHS App, a simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet.
You can use the NHS App to check your symptoms and get instant advice, book appointments, order repeat prescriptions, view your GP medical record and more.
If you already use EMIS online you can continue to use it. You can use the NHS App as well.
