If you wish to, you can now access 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.

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.  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.

Should you wish to have access online, please come in and request a form to complete.

This will be passed to your usual GP to check your medical records and decide if access will be granted.

Once access is granted you will be able to view records from 1st December 2016 in line with our practice policy.
