With GP online services you can use a website or app to:

  • book or cancel appointments online with a GP or nurse
  • order repeat prescriptions online
  • view parts of your GP record, including information about medication, allergies, vaccinations, previous illnesses and test results

The service is free and available to everyone who is registered with a GP.

There are a number of different apps or websites that offer these functions.  Our patients tend to use either the NHS App or Patient Access, and we have give a brief overview of each of these below, along with links to the service of your choice.

 

NHS App

 

  • Order prescriptions 
  • Book appointments 
  • View your records 

Comments

  • No need to get a PIN number from reception
  • Likely to incorporate eConsultations within the App in the relatively near future
  • Currently no desktop option.  Only an app.  NHS England have promised a desktop version “soon”
  • Some people have found the sign up process a bit fiddly.  Can take around 30 minutes to set up.  After that though it should be straightforward with subsequent use.
