Manage your health from your mobile

14 September 2017

Did you know you can now access your GP practice and manage your health online in much the same way as managing other areas of your life, such as banking and shopping?

GP online is a quick, easy and secure way to book GP appointments, order repeat prescriptions and view parts of your medical records, including information about medication, allergies, vaccinations and test results.

By registering with GP online you can book appointments and request repeat prescriptions via your computer, smartphone or tablet at a time that suits you, anywhere, anytime – 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

I can’t emphasise enough how much everyone can benefit from this fantastic and convenient service, and I encourage more people to sign up and get involved. 

To register for GP online services simply take photo ID and proof of address to your GP practice, and they will sign you up. You will then receive a unique username and password and can start using the online services straight away. The services available depend on the online system your GP practice uses.
