EMIS Patient Online Access is a service available to patients so that they can book G.P appointments and request repeat medication via the internet at home. Patients can also see some aspects of their medical record as well as booking appointments and ordering prescriptions.
To use the internet appointment booking and prescription requesting facility you need to register on the following website www.patient.co.uk. The information you enter enables the system to check your identity. You also enter a password and security information that no-one else will know.
To register on the above website you can go directly on to it to register for an account by following the instructions on the screens shown when accessing the site. Alternatively, you can come into the surgery and get a form from us to enable you to register on the site once you get home.
Once you have registered for an online account you will need to bring 2 forms of ID (preferably 1 photo ID if you have it, plus something with your current address on it) into the surgery to enable us to verify your identity and accept you on to our system for this service. You can opt for just having prescriptions and medication if you wish a family member to order your medication and book appointments, without them being able to see other aspects of your medical record.
