GP Online Services
Digital services can be used as a valuable tool in enabling self care to support patients to take greater control of their health and wellbeing, whilst providing more choice, convenience and control in how GP services can be accessed.
GP Online Service allows patients to access a range of services via computer, tablet or mobile. Once patients have signed up, they will be able to:
- Book or cancel appointments online with a GP or nurse
- Re-order repeat prescriptions online
- View parts of their GP health record, including information about medication, allergies, vaccinations, previous illnesses and test results.
The service is free and everyone who is registered with a GP can have access to their practice’s online services. As of December 2017, 37 out of the 38 practices across the district currently had over 10% of patients registered to use the services.
