All patients can now access our appointments system on line, as well as ordering medicines and viewing medical records.
There are various websites /apps that you can access to do this, and some of the more established apps allow proxy access, which means you can make appointments or order medications on behalf of elderly relatives or children, who may not be able to do so themselves.
We have a tablet in our reception area which is for patient use, if you do not have access to a computer at home, which means you can pop in and log onto your own account and make appointments from the comfort of our ground floor waiting area!
The NHS App was launched this month, which has great functionality in terms of symptom checking, and it is really user friendly, although you do have to have a smart device to download and access this https://www.nhs.uk/using-the-nhs/nhs-services/the-nhs-app/
If you don't have a smart device you can use other , well established patient electronic websites, which you can then access from a website browser (i.e. Explorer/Chrome). When you ask the reception team about signing up they will print you information and a linkage key to complete an on line account, and at that point you will receive a list of possible patient websites you can sign up to and access.
