Online Services

You can now access a variety of services online without having to phone or visit the surgery by completing our online services registration form below. This allows you to:

  • Book routine appointments
  • View and download your test results
  • View your GP Summary
  • Order repeat prescriptions

Once setup, you can use the NHS app or Patient Access to access the above online services from a smartphone, tablet or computer.

They will save you time and help you take more control of your health, particularly if you have any long-term medical conditions which require regular monitoring and prescriptions.

How to sign up to Online Services

  1. You can do this automatically yourself via the NHS App. It will ask you to verify your identity for full access to your record.
  2. Alternatively, you can print the form below and bring this with you to the surgery with valid photo ID (e.g. driver’s license or passport). Once we have processed your form you will receive a code to link your medical record with your online account.
