We’re pleased to announce that we will be launching a new online consultation tool called PATCHS at GP Direct on 21st June. We have selected PATCHS to take the place of our current online consultation service to improve the experience for our patients.
The new online consultation service offers a secure, simple and flexible way for patients and carers to contact us – it will not replace face to face appointments, it is in addition to routine contact with Practices. This should not be used for emergencies when you should contact 999 or visit A&E.
By registering you will have easy access to a range of services from your computer or smartphone, including:
- reporting symptoms to your GP
- accessing health advice
To request repeat prescriptions, you should continue to follow the current process we have in place.
You can register at https://bit.ly/GPDPatchs or on our website homepage.
All you will need to do is provide an email address and set up a password.
For more information on PATCHS you can visit their website.
