GP online services gives patients the option to book appointments, request repeat prescriptions and view your GP records from the comfort of your own home using your computer, tablet or smartphone.
All GP practices in Salford now offer patients an online system in addition to phoning or visiting your practice – the choice is yours!
Sarah Williams, Assistant Practice Manager at Newbury Green Medical Practice, said: “Because our patients can book their appointments or cancel them at any time even when we’re closed, it’s much easier for them and has improved access.”
If you want to register for GP online services you will need to fill out a form at your GP practice and show two forms of ID, one of which should have a photo (such as a UK passport or driving licence) and the other should have your address (such as a council tax bill). If you don’t have photo ID or anything with your address on it, it doesn’t mean you will not be able to use online services, just ask in your practice for help.
To register for GP online services, drop in to your GP practice or to find out more visit the NHS Choices website at www.nhs.uk/GPonlineservices
