Online services available

People registered with our surgery can book appointments and request repeat prescriptions at a time convenient to them, thanks to GP online services.

These services enable people to book GP appointments and request repeat prescriptions via their computer, smartphone or tablet at a time that suits them rather than calling or visiting the surgery.

This approach can save people a phone call or journey to the surgery, and allow them to do what they need to when the surgery is closed. Patients living with a long term health condition can also benefit by having a greater involvement in their healthcare as they can access test results and keep track of their treatment.

How it works

All patient information is kept securely. This page on the surgery website CLICK HERE allows access to the information patients need. Smartphone and tablet users can also download the app (we use SystmOne Clinical System), which gives users the same choice in how they access GP online services.

This service works alongside traditional methods of accessing services, it does not replace them. By allowing people who want to make appointments and order prescriptions this way, it should become easier for others to get through on the phone to the surgery during busy periods.

How to register for online services

If you want to register for GP online services you will need to fill out a form at the surgery and show one form of ID one of which should have a photo (such as a UK passport or driving licence, other options available). 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 surgery staff may be able to help.
