Patient Online is an NHS England programme designed to support GP practices to offer and promote online services to patients, including access to records, online appointment booking and online repeat prescriptions.
Digital technology has the power to change the relationship between patients and their GP practice, just as it has changed our relationships in other walks of life, such a managing our finances or shopping. It can make services more convenient, personal and efficient.
The NHS’s ambition is to embrace technology as part of its drive to offer modern, convenient and responsive services to patients, their families and carers.
Please contact your GP practice to find more about accessing online GP services such as online appointment booking, repeat prescriptions and access to your own patient record.
