Could be better

The GP I use has two practices in the same suburb. It's great that I can save one doctor as a favourite but if they're not available when I need them, I want to be able to favourite both the practices, so I can quickly find other doctors in the same practice without having to scroll or search and filter through every practice in the region to find another GP in my practice! Can we please have the option to favourite multiple GPs or practices?? That aside some of my appointments booked through the app do not show in the app... yet I got confirmation email and the appointment is auto confirmed and the practice reception also see it. I want to change it but I can't cancel it because it's not there so I have to waste time calling the practice to cancel or change appointments... which totally defeats the object of having the app.



So far, so good. I wish there was a way for the app to integrate any appointments I’ve made while I was at the doctors. Sometimes I book my next appointment once I’m done, but the app doesn’t pick up the booking from the clinics system. Perhaps issuing each patient with a unique identifier, that the booking system and app recognise?.. without the need for adding further personal information to the app?.. Anyway, hopefully there’s a way to have this feature in the future 😊👍


Best invention ever

This app makes it so easy to make an appointment without having to ring up and be put on hold. And being able to choose your doctor and appointment time yourself without having to go through the whole rigmarole with a receptionist over the phone is so easy and makes things so simple, which is what life should be about. Thumbs up! 👍🏼
