Try the NHS App
If you’re a patient at our practice you can now use the new NHS App, a simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet.
You can use the NHS App to check your symptoms and get instant advice, order repeat prescriptions, view your GP medical record and more.
If you already use Patient Access you can continue to use it. You can use the NHS App as well.
You can register, verify your Identity, and access your medical records all within the app.
Please complete an Online services registration form if;
- You are unable to verify your Identity through the app
- You would like to donate 'proxy access' for your records to another person.
- You would like 'proxy access' to your child's medical records (for Children 10 years old or younger).
