What is Patient Access?
With Patient Access, you can now view, book and cancel appointments from home, work or on the move – wherever you can connect to the internet. What’s more, because Patient Access is a 24 hour online service – you can do this in your own time, day or night.
Patient Access is not just for booking GP appointments; you can also order repeat prescriptions.

Online Access to Medical Records
From 1 April 2015 the Government intends to allow patients to view and download a summary of their medical records on line.
This will include Medications, Allergy’s and adverse conditions.
You will need to sign up to our online Access facility. If you already have online access for prescriptions and appointments, you need do nothing more. If you currently request prescription repeats by email then please sign up for on-line repeats here.
We will post updates here for this service when more details are available.
