Setting up an NHS account
To set up your NHS account for the first time, you will need to set up an NHS login. Read about how to set up NHS login (nhs.uk).
Once you have set up your NHS login, you can log in to your NHS account or download the NHS App onto your phone.
Setting up an online service account
To register for GP online services complete the appropriate medical record online access form below and read the attached patient information leaflet. Submit the completed form at the reception with photographic ID and you will be issued with a username and password. This is so that we can verify your identity and protect your confidentiality. Due to confidentiality, we do not accept these forms via email.
Proxy access refers to access to online services by somebody acting on behalf of the patient and usually with the patient’s consent. The proxy does not have to be a registered patient at the practice.
- Child access will automatically be disabled when a child reaches the age of 11 and 16
- A competency assessment will be carried out to grant the proxy access. A competent child must authorise the request for Proxy Access/ this will be at the discretion of a clinician.
- A child deemed competent may have access to their online record or authorise a parent/carer to have Proxy Access to their full medical record or limited proxy access to specific services, such as appointment booking or repeat prescription requests, but not to the medical records.
- Where a child is deemed not to be competent, a parent will apply for access but will be registered as a Proxy User at the discretion of a clinician.
