Patient online is a new NHS England programme enabling GP practices to provide online services to patients. You can book routine GP appointments, order repeat prescriptions, and view health records all online.
Contact your GP Practice today to find out how to register for online services. Patients will need to show some photo ID and proof of address before their practice can provide a user name and password. The purpose of this programme is provide patients with more choice and control in how they access GP services.
This also supports four principles of effective healthcare:
- Shared decision making.
At the same time we are hoping this will reduce the number of calls made to practices and ‘free up’ the phone lines for those who are unable to use online services.
