Help us to help you faster - with Patient Access

Use Patient Access to book appointments, review your medication and allergy information, and order repeat prescriptions. You can also request an additional function that allows you to view key details of your medical record, including data on vaccination history and current active medical problems. 

To set up an account for Patient Access you will need to attend in person bringing with you photo ID (ideally a valid passport or driving licence) so that the practice can approve your application and provide you with an application form.

You are not permitted to apply on someone elses behalf.

As per NHS England’s guidance on Online Access, this is a mandatory requirement of the application process.

In order to keep your data safe, we strongly recomend that you sign out each time, keep your passwords secure and look after your Patient Access data the the same way you would for online bank details. 

Please do not contact the surgery for any difficulties using this service - instead, please use the on-line support centre on the Patient Access website.

Antibiotic Resistance

Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest threats facing us today. See the Antiobiotic Garden website for details.

Why it is relevant to you: without effective antibiotics many routine treatments will become increasingly dangerous. Setting broken bones, basic surgical procedures, even chemotherapy and animal health all rely on access to effective antibiotic therapy.

What we want you to do: To slow resistance we need to cut the unnecessary use of antibiotics. We invite the public, students and educators, farmers, the veterinary and medical communities and professional organisations, to become Antibiotic Guardians.

Call to action: Choose one simple pledge about how you’ll make better use of antibiotics and help save these vital medicines from becoming obsolete.

 

Hampshire Walking

We are supporting the Get Hampshire Walking campaign. We are spreading the word about the benefits of walking to help patients lead healthier and more active lives.
It is not difficult - a few extra steps, using the stairs and not the lift, getting off the bus a stop early will all help.

Walking can also help you get out more, meet new people and improve your social life.

Find out what you can get involved with in your local area.

Pre-consultation sheets

To help you work with your GP we have put together a few questions. We used this for 100 patients across two surgeries in Hampshire and it was shown to help both doctors and patients. Comments included “It helped me remember and prepare”, “very useful to order my thoughts”. Fill one out and bring it along with you to your next consultation.

For your doctor it helps to know, early on, what your list of questions is and which one you want to focus on. GPs have to share their time across an average of 2000 patients so there is a limit to appointment time. Doctors have around seven minutes face to face with you within a ten minute appointment after allowing for preparation and actions afterwards.

Knowing what you think the problem is (your ideas), what you are worried it might be (your concerns) and what you hoped would happen (your expectations) is helpful for doctors. The earlier they can know your “ideas, concerns and expectations” (ICE) the better as they can then address these early on. Pre consulation Questionnaire
