There is currently a national issue with the Patient Access web portal, so unfortunately no patients can make any on-line appointments or possibly make any repeat prescriptions request at the moment. This is being investigated and is outside of the control of Penistone Group Practice.
WE NOW OFFER THE PATIENT ACCESS AND EVERGREEN LIFE ONLINE SYSTEMS WHICH MANY PRACTICES NATIONALLY ARE NOW ADOPTING. THESE ARE MORE INTEGRATED AND ROBUST SYSTEMS WHICH ALLOW YOU TO BOOK GP APPOINTMENTS DIRECTLY ONLINE, AS WELL AS ORDER YOUR REPEAT MEDICATION DIRECT FROM YOUR OWN MEDICAL RECORD.
GP online services allow you to access a range of services via your computer, mobile or tablet. Once you have signed up, you will be able to:
- book or cancel appointments online
- renew or order repeat prescriptions online
- view parts of your GP record, including information about medication, allergies, vaccinations, previous illnesses and test results
You can still contact the practice by phone or in person, this is just another option, which other patients have found is more convenient and saves them time. More information including “how to” leaflets and videos of patients and why they are using GP online services are available at www.nhs.uk/gponlineservices
