This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
PLEASE NOTE: The latest app version requires iOS 8 to enable the "Personal Health Record" functionality. If you are using an earlier iOS you can still download the previous version that gives access to all other features.
Patient Access is a service that lets you access your local GP services through your mobile. With Patient Access, you can access your local GP services from home, work or on the move wherever you can connect to the internet. Because Patient Access is a 24 hour online service you can do this in your own time, day or night.
Make life easier by getting access to your own 24-hour "receptionist"! No more waiting on the phone in queues, just use Patient Access to book/cancel your appointments, order repeat prescriptions, and message your practice.
Make appointment bookings online or via the app - with calendar reminders and one touch cancellations, it couldn't be easier.
View your medical record information held at your practice, if they have chosen to enable this feature.
And now you can connect Patient Access with Apple Health to create a Personal Health Record which you can choose to share with your health professional (iOS 8 only).
If your practice has turned these options on, With Patient Access, you will be able to:
* Book new appointments without having to phone.
* Cancel appointments you can't attend any more.
* View all appointments you have coming up.
* Order repeat prescriptions so they are ready to pick up.
* Change your address and contact details in seconds.
* Send a secure message to your practice.
* View your medical record held at your practice.
* Upload your health data from Apple Health to a Personal Health Record which you can choose to share with your health professional (iOS 8 only)
Your local GP may not offer every Patient Access feature. Ask at your practice to find out which are available to you.
You must have registered at a participating EMIS practice to use Patient Access. Around 1 in 4 GPs in the UK currently offer the Patient Access service.
PLEASE NOTE: YOU NEED TO HAVE AN EXISTING PATIENT ACCESS ACCOUNT TO USE THIS APP.
What's New in Version 1.5.1
Minor bug fixes and enhancements.
This has been so easy to look at and order prescriptions until a little while ago. For some reason my past prescriptions have flipped how they’re viewed. It was most recent at the top in date descending order. Now the most recent is at the bottom. Not difficult you say? It is when you take as many meds as I do. Just to see what I Last ordered takes some scrolling and my current request is right at the bottom. So much easier when viewed at the top when the app is opened. If I can alter this myself please let me know how. If you need to do it please do! It’s more annoying than most will understand. I await your response. Thank you.
Excellent & easy way to book GP appointments
After getting set up via my GP clinic i now only ever use this app to book & cancel my appointments! Will never phone again!
The great thing is you can book one, which will usually be a while away due to waiting times, but if you have an urgent need you can check back everyday, and usually new will appointments pop up.
Very convenient and you can see what time appointments are available, and with who. If you check one day and there are none available, most likely the next day there will be.
Highly recommend for easy way to book and manage your GP appointments!
Very helpful app
Good app doesn't feel like its had much user(patient) input as can be a little fiddly with selections being very small mine crashes regularly which is annoying especially when trying to add / syncs my Gp appointment to my outlook calendar please fix as it spoils an otherwise good app which must save my Gp practice time
Prescription ordering it would be helpful if it had a push notification letting you know: when the Rx has been sent to the chemist and when they are ready for collection.
