Access our Appointment and Medication system via Patient Access.
People registered with our surgery can now book appointments and request repeat prescriptions at a time convenient to them.
These services enable people to book appointments with a Doctor and request repeat prescriptions via their computer, smart phone or tablet at a time that suits them rather than calling or visiting the surgery. Please note: the medication does, however, need to be on a repeat prescription before it can be ordered.
This approach can save people a phone call or journey to the surgery and also allows them to do what they need to when the surgery is closed.
There is page on the surgery website www.laurelhousesurgery.co.uk where patients can login and this allows access to the information patients need. Smartphone and tablet users can also download the app, which gives users choice in how they access GP online services.
This service works alongside traditional methods of accessing services, it does not replace them. By allowing people who want to make appointments and order prescriptions this way, it should become easier for others to get through on the phone to the surgery during busy periods.
If you want to register for GP online services you will need to fill out a form at the surgery 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, our surgery staff may be able to help.
To register for GP online services, drop in and ask us, or to find out more visit the NHS Choices website at www.nhs.uk/GPonlineservices.
We hope that you find this information helpful.
