Our Online Services
We offer an online service for our patients so you can book your appointments and order your repeat prescriptions online at your convenience.
Online appointment booking – Have the flexibility to book and cancel your appointments from home, at work or any location with internet access. You don’t need to queue at the practice, wait on the telephone and you can manage your appointments outside practice opening hours.
Request your repeat prescriptions online – Request your repeat prescriptions quickly online by logging into your account and simply ticking the appropriate boxes. You can review the progress of your repeat prescriptions and any message that the practice may have sent to you.
Access to records – View a summary from your records relating to medications, allergies and adverse reactions online, see “It’s your choice” leaflet for more details.
The practice plans to offer the facility for patients to view online, export or print detailed coded information held in their own records from 31st March 2016. This date is subject to the necessary NHS GP systems and software being available to the practice.
In order to register and use this facility you will need to complete the registration form below and take it to the surgery along with a valid form of identification, for example photo ID or your passport. Once you have registered the practice will give you the information and a ‘token’ that will enable you to create a username and password.
- Please note we look closely at all applications for access to make sure they are genuine
- Access can also be withdrawn at any time if there are concerns about patient confidentiality.
