Patient Access

Patient Access is a service provided by EMIS that allows you to access your practice online. Patient Access includes a number of optional features, including:

  • Checking, booking and cancelling appointments.
  • Checking your medication and ordering repeat medication.
  • Updating your contact information, including mobile phone number and email address.
  • Sending messages to your practice, so avoiding the need for a phone call for routine enquiries. Your practice may not offer all these features.

How do I register?

There are two ways of registering to use Patient Access, both accessible here (click the “Register” button).

1. Register with a letter

You can register by firstly visiting your practice in person and requesting a registration letter which will enable you to set up a full account. This needs to be requested when you visit the practice and will require identification. Once you have the letter you can then enter the details from the letter into the registration form.

2. Register without a letter

You can also register for the service online without a letter. This process will check to see if your practice uses Patient Access and create a basic account that allows you to book an appointment.

If you use this option, to get access to the complete features that your practice offers you will need to visit them in person and take ID with you.

Childrens Registrations

If registering children under the age of 5 years:

A paper registration is required for each child which can be printed off from either the practice website or collected via our Reception Desk. Please bring a copy of the child immunisation history from the red book to reception or email to

Temporary Registration

If you become ill whilst away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one, you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP Practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact one of our surgeries. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered. Click here for more information.
