Can the same email address / mobile phone number be used for more than one account?
No. The Patient Access service is designed for individual users. Therefore, the same email address should NOT be used for more than one patient. This is due to notifications being sent to the communication details provided which may not be the intended patient.
There are plenty of free e-mail providers where you can set up an account.
The surgery cannot be held responsible for a notification being sent to the wrong patient.
Can children register for the online service?
The surgery does not offer online services to patients aged between 11-15yrs. NHS England recommend that practices adopt a very cautious approach to allowing parents to access their records. We have decided to adopt the most practical approach and withdraw access, unless there are exceptional circumstances in this case each will be assessed on an individual basis by the GP. Patients aged 0-10yrs standard access will be granted if requested by parents.
Why isn’t all my medication available to order online?
Certain medication will be prescribed to you as an acute medication. There are many reasons why your GP has done this. The ordering system will only allow you to order your repeat medication. Therefore, if you have any acute medication that you would like on repeat please speak to your GP or the Dispensary team.
Will I be able to view my full Medical Record online?
You will be able to view this if you have requested enhanced access , this can be done by completing an Online Registration Form - please note it can take up to 14 working days.
How do I cancel my Patient Access account?
