What is Patient Online?
Patient Online gives patients the option to make appointments, order repeat prescriptions and view their GPs’ medical record online, using their computer, tablet or smartphone. It complements the existing ways patients access appointments, prescriptions and their records.
Online services will be offered in addition to the traditional telephone and face-to-face means of interacting with a GP practice. Patients will be able to choose the route they prefer.
Patients appreciate the ease and convenience and record access helps them to be better informed about their health and better able to self-manage long term conditions.
The GMS and PMS contracts required practices to promote and offer online access to the coded data in their health record and in 2016/17 there are non-contractual changes that call for practice to provide patients with online access to clinical correspondence such as discharge summaries, outpatient appointment letters, and referral letters.
Patient information leaflet ‘It’s your choice’
Please print off and complete the patient application form. Bring the form into the surgery with 2 patient identifiable documents, e.g. driving licence, passport, utility bill so that the surgery can issue you with your unique PIN number.

Consult with your doctor online
We’ve recently launched a new system you can use to check your symptoms and submit forms to us.
It’s available online from the link below or via www.patientaccess.com. All you need to do is click the link and it’ll take you to an online form where you outline your symptoms. You’ll then receive access to tailored and clinically approved articles and videos which will help you self-manage your condition.
The forms are sent directly and securely to us at the practice so we can check your answers and assess whether you need a face-to-face appointment with the GP or not and if not, we’ll give you the advice you need on what to do next.
The forms are tailored to you and they’ve all been approved by clinicians so the advice you get is really accurate and helpful.
