We now offer a facility for booking routine GP appointments, ordering your repeat prescriptions and viewing parts of your medical record via an online web service called Patient Online Access. Please ask the receptionist for your Patient Access Registration information and relevant Registration form so you can apply for your own secure account. Unfortunately it is not possible to apply online for access so you will need to come into the practice to complete the process.
You may find this leaflet 'It's your choice' helpful to consider before you apply:
