THIS FACILITY IS NOW LIVE SO YOU CAN 'REGISTER' FOR THIS OPTION NOW - PLEASE READ ON...
From Monday 1st September 2014 onwards, 25% of routine appointments with each of the GP's (not locums) will be available to be booked on-line by you, our patients.
You will be able to book and cancel your routine GP appointments on-line at any time of the day without having to contact the surgery. You will be able to book your appointment from 2 days and up to 28 days in advance securely without having to wait to get through to the surgery by telephone. We really hope this facility will save you a bit of your time.
In order to use this facility, you will need to pop in to the surgery so that we can register you on our system. For confidentiality reasons, we will need to see photographic proof of your identity (passport, photo driving licence) plus proof of your current address. Upon proof of your identity, we will then update your registration profile on our patient database.
For details of which forms of ID are acceptable, please navigate to the 'Further Information' section on our website. You will also be able to complete the application form from here although you will still need to present your forms of ID to the reception team.
The receptionists will then give you written confirmation of your 'Patient Access Registration ID' along with instructions so that you will be able to register for on-line appointment booking.
When this is complete, you will be able to access available appointments at the website address below:-
We hope in the future that we can increase more of our appointment slots on-line, however initially we wish to monitor the bookings made to ensure that the system is not being abused. Patients who regularly book their appointments on-line and who subsequently fail to attend without good reason will have their on-line access disabled.
