Did you know, if you have a smartphone or tablet you can download the NHS App without having to come into the Practice to Register. The NHS App allows you do book appointments, view your records and order repeat prescriptions on your smartphone/tablet. It is quick and easy to set up yourself at home. To get set up, simply search for "NHS App" in your app store. Once downloaded, follow the instructions in the app to register and verifiy your identity. It is usually possible to get up and running on the same day. Further information about the NHS App can be found here.
Online Access on a PC
If you do not have a smartphone or tablet and wish to register for online access on a PC, the process is as follows:
To register for access to our GP online services, please come into the practice and speak to one of our receptionists, ensuring that you bring with you photo ID (e.g. passport, driving licence or bus pass) and proof of address (such as a bank statement or utility bill).

Please make sure you tick all the services that you want to use, and read the terms and conditions you are given relating to accessing your medical records.
Once you have signed up, it will take us between 5 and 10 working days to process your request. We will send you an E-mail with your unique linkage key, the practice "ODS" code and an account ID, together with instructions on how to logon to your chosen service provider.
