Our Current Online Patient Services

Our current GP system supplier is the largest supplier of GP medical systems in England, EMIS. We use there EMIS Web software package and, as the name implies, this allows us to make a variety of facilities available to our patients online.

Through EMIS Web we offer our patients the online ability to:

  1. Book, view, amend, cancel and print appointments online
  2. Order, view and print a list of their repeat prescriptions for drugs, medicines or appliances
  3. View in summary selected information from their records, relating to medications, allergies, adverse reactions
         and any other items agreed between the practice and the individual patient

We publicise and promote our online services to our patients through the practice website, practice waiting room leaflets, posters and via the Patient Participation Group and patients who wish to register for this facility are asked to liaise with the Reception Team.

The Future
It is our intention to give patients who request access to more than just summary details as soon as EMIS have developed EMIS Web sufficiently in line with the national standard required for us to be able to do this.
