GP Online Service
Have you tried out the facility for online health advice via Patient Access? Patients can check symptoms and be signposted to web-based information about their condition. The Online Health Advice feature gives access to a wealth of medical information including articles and videos.
By filling in a simple health enquiry form, patients can read information on how to treat their symptoms and what to do next. The form will then come through to the surgery who will review the information provided and respond within 48 hours. If the information provided by the patient indicates an urgent need for medical attention, they will be directed appropriately.
How does it work?
Sign into or register for Patient Access at www.patientaccess.com. Search for your symptoms or condition and select the results that match.
Read through the relevant health information and guidance tailored to your results. Once you’ve read the advice, if you still need help, submit the details through the online form and a relevant staff member at the surgery will review it.
They will then advise if you need to contact elsewhere (999, NHS 111 or your pharmacy) based on your symptoms.
Did Not Attend (DNA) Policy
Patients failing to attend appointments is a huge and avoidable waste of valuable clinician appointments. This causes an increase in the waiting time for appointments, frustration for both staff and patients, a waste of resources and a potential risk to the health of the patient. Please ensure if you are not able to make your appointment, you cancel it in advance. Please read our DNA policy here for more information.
