Have you considered using our new e-consultation service for self help or for non-medical/administrative help from the practice?
The e-consultation service should not be used to request urgent medical advice, or to order medicines.
ACCESS TO YOUR OWN MEDICAL RECORDS
If you would like to have access to your medical records, please consider registering for Patient Access. This will give you access to information on your medical history and diagnoses, allergies and medications. You can use Patient Access to book and cancel appointments, and you can order your regular repeat medication.
