The NHS is increasingly moving towards the provision of online services and, by registering to use such services, you can now make your own appointments online, arrange repeat prescriptions, view test results, see your inoculation history, and review your medical records — all from the comfort of your own home, using a PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
But it's not always easy to know how to navigate these services, or where to find help if you're unsure what to do.
Haddenham Medical Centre's Patient Participation Group (PPG) understands how complicated this can be and has developed written materials and face-to-face training to help patients get online.
The PPG has written Plain English factsheets to help you get online and is hosting training sessions for those wanting individual help with the registration process.
The Group is offering a free training session on Thursday 31st January at Haddenham Medical Centre, commencing at 10.30am.
Bring your smartphone, tablet or laptop with you, or just bring yourself — we'll show you what you need to do!
Please note, you will NOT be able to set up your Patient Access account unless you have first requested online access from reception AND been given your "registration letter" which gives the account reference number and linkage code needed for you to get online access.
This can be achieved relatively easily, but you'll need to act quickly — pop into Reception today and start the process off!
