Following a recent change in practice software, more functionality is available if the “Patient Access” web feature is used. Once an account is made (online), as well as booking a selection of doctor appointments where available, patients can make use of the repeat prescribing list (rather than typing in the names on the usual form), see other details on the NHS National Patient Record Summary such as any allergy lists, and obtain certain test results. Instructions are supplied on clicking the link on the practice home page. If you are an existing account user and you don’t already have all the features listed, then these can be added on request to the practice.
Please be aware that the software is run by the national EMIS supplier rather than the practice, and any comments or difficulties about its use should be directed toward the support team (link via log in page).
