Online Services

Patient Access is an online service offered by our clinical computer system (EMIS) to allow patients to perform certain tasks online.

Registering for Patient Access
In order to register, you need, first of all, to go to the EMIS Access website. Here you can set up your account up in a provisional status. You then should attend surgery with evidence of:

  • Your identity (e.g. a passport)
  • Your address (e.g. a utility bill)

We will then confirm your online access. The system links into the practice’s clinical system and allows you, once registered, to use any of the following services:

This service also allows you to review and cancel appointments that you have booked at the practice. 
Repeat prescriptions
Patients who receive regular prescriptions from the practice can request a repeat prescription from the practice by logging onto EMIS Access and selecting the drugs that are required. The Doctor then either accepts or declines the request and the patient is notified.
