About Patient Access
You can book, cancel or check your appointments on the Web. You can also order repeat prescriptions, and view parts of your medical record (to view your detail coded record please contact reception) and change your personal details.
You can make routine appointments online to see any of the GPs. You can also make an appointment online for the Diabetic Clinic and the Male Sexual Health Clinic.
There are also a number of appointments online for specific nurse procedures, such as cervical smears, repeat contraception and asthma reviews. It is not appropriate to book a GP appointment for these procedures. Please ensure that a nurse led clinic appointment is booked. If you are unable to do this, please contact reception.
For non-routine appointments, such as medicals, travel vaccinations, etc, please contact us by telephone or in person to make an appointment. If you are booking a nurse appointment, please make sure that you are booking into a suitable clinic. Inappropriate appointments made online are liable to be re-arranged
How It Works
At busy times it can be difficult to contact the practice by telephone, and after hours there is no one to answer the phone for routine enquiries. using the internet, you will be able to view a range of available appointments and take your time to choose the best one for you.
Ask reception for your login details (in person or by email as above) and then register online to use Patient Access. After registering, you log on with your patient number and a password. You will then be able to view appointments you have already made, cancel them if necessary, and book an appointment with your doctor after checking the times available.
We take the security of our patients' information very seriously. By working with EMIS, the company that provides the computer systems for this practice (and for more that 50% of all doctors in the UK), we can ensure that the information you provide when using the internet facility is protected.
All communications with the internet appointment booking facility are encrypted, using the same high security that major banks use for their internet transactions (128 bit SSL). only you can see the personal information you enter. The web site is administered at a remote high-security site managed by EMIS, not at the practice, so there is on possibility of unauthorised access.
Using the most up-to-date version of your web browser also improves security of information. Remember to close the browser after use, especially if someone else could access your computer.
