To login for online services you will need to register for EMIS Patient Access, which replaced your previous login for Vision Online.
If you do not have online access you should come to the surgery and complete the registration form, bringing with you two forms of ID (one photo ID, i.e. passport or driving licence, and one utility bill showing your name and the address at which you are registered at the practice). We will then issue you with a username and password to set up an online service.
The software that the practice uses for your medical records is supplied by a company called EMIS. They, along with other providers, provide the web-based service ‘Patient Access’ that enables you to update your details, order prescriptions, book appointments, and view aspects of your medical records. The Patient Access website is secure and your information on it is only accessible by you. If you click on any of the ‘Read more’ buttons next to your medications or allergies, you will be taken to a different website www.patient.info which is a commercial website with advertising that is also owned by EMIS, and over which we have no control. Some people find the advertising there intrusive, and you may prefer to use www.nhs.uk or other online resources to look up information.
Once you are registered you will be able to use the service to:
- Order your repeat prescriptions
- Make an appointment
- Cancel an appointment
- Change your contact details
- Review your medications and known allergies
