If you wish to, you can use the internet to book appointments with a GP, request repeat prescriptions for any medications you take regularly and from the 1st April 2016 look at your medical record online. You can still use the telephone or call in to the surgery for any of these services as well. It's your choice.
Being able to see your record online might help you to manage your medical conditions. It also means that you can even access it from anywhere in the world should you require medical treatment on holiday. If you decide not to join or wish to withdraw, this is your choice and practice staff will continue to treat you in the same way as before. This decision will not affect the quality of your care.
If you wish to apply for online access to your medical record you will need to complete an application form at the surgery. You will need two forms of ID, one with a photo, i.e. driving licence, passport and proof of residence, i.e. bill etc. If you wish someone to have proxy access to your records, for example if you have a carer, you will need to fill out a consent form for them to access your records.
