Online Services

Online Services

Connect to your GP services online and save time. Quick, easy and secure.

Online Services

Online services allow you to access your GP medical record, view test results, order repeat prescriptions and book appointments all in one place without having to contact your GP surgery.

Online services also allow you to set up a proxy account for people that you care for.

For instructions on getting started with online services, please visit NHS website here.

You can set up online services at home, however to receive full access you need to complete a form to prove your identity.

If you need to prove your identity to access your own medical records, you need to complete the ‘Application for Online Access to GP Services’ form below:

Application for Online Access to GP Service (Click to expand)

Before you apply for online access to your medical record, there are some other things to consider.

Although the chances of any of these things happening are very small, you are asked that you have read and understood the following before you are given login details.

Things to consider

Forgotten history

There may be something you have forgotten about in your record that you might find upsetting

Abnormal results or bad news

If your GP has given you access to test results or letters, you may see something that you find upsetting. This may occur before you have spoken to your doctor or while the surgery is closed, and you cannot contact them.

Choosing to share your information with someone

It’s up to you whether or not you share your information with others – perhaps family members or carers. It’s your choice, but also your responsibility to keep the information safe and secure.


If you think you may be pressured into revealing details from your patient record to someone else against your will, it is best that you do not register for access at this time.

Misunderstood information

Your medical record is designed to be used by clinical professionals to ensure that you receive the best possible care. Some of the information within your medical record may be highly technical, written by specialists and not easily understood. If you require further clarification, please contact the surgery for a clearer explanation.

Information about someone else

If you spot something in the record that is not about you or notice any other errors, please log out of the system immediately and contact the practice as soon as possible.
