What is Patient Access?
With Patient Access, you can now view, book and cancel appointments at your local GP surgery from home, work or on the move — wherever you can connect to the internet. What is more, because Patient Access is a 24 hour online service you can do this in your own time, day or night.
Plus, Patient Access is not just for booking GP appointments, you can also:
- Order repeat prescriptions.
- Change your address details.
- Send secure messages to your practice.
- View your medical record securely online
Please note: your local practice may not offer every Patient Access feature. Ask at your surgery to find out which are available to you.
How do I register?
If your practice offers Patient Access, they will provide you with an access code. Once you have the access code, you can register here. You will be asked to provide photographic id such as Passport or Driving Licence.
Is my information secure?
All information that is sent to your surgery via Patient Access is secure. Your personal details are encrypted and protected using the highest standard internet security, so it cannot be intercepted. Only you and your GP surgery are able to see this information.
