NHS Online

This practice currently offers the facility for patients

  • To book, view, amend, cancel and print appointments online
  • To order online, view and print a list of their repeat prescription for drugs, medicines or appliances
  • To view online, export or print summary information from their record, relating to medications, allergies and adverse reactions

This is via TPP SystmOne using our website www.wellsidemedicalcentre.co.uk

If you do not already have a username and password for this system you will need to register by calling in to the practice in person with appropriate identification. Please enquire at reception beforehand as to the nature of identification that will be appropriate for this purpose.

 

We will seek necessary assurances from our clinical software providers to ensure that patients can request online access to their detailed coded records in a manner that is secure and safeguards the best interests of the patient.

We will inform patients when appropriate arrangements are in place and we will publicise and promote our online services using the practice website and waiting room posters.

Patient Online Access

Link to SystmOnline Services

The SystmOnline service is also available as an app on your smartphone, tablet or iphone. See the links on the login page.

Patient Online Access is available at this surgery for;

  • Booking Doctors Appointments*
  • Cancelling any Appointments
  • Ordering Repeat Medication
  • Viewing your Summary Care Record (SCR). This contains basic information such as allergies, sensitivities and medication.  The SCR is automatically updated when anything changes.

You need to be registered for SystmOnline to be able to do any of the above, so if you do not already have access to SystmOnline you will need to visit the surgery with some photographic ID (i.e. passport or driving license) and proof of your address ( i.e. bank statement or utility bill) you will then be issued with your registration paperwork. 

If you already have online access for booking appointments and ordering repeat medication and would now also like to access your summary care record, you will need to ask at the surgery in order that the appropriate access may be granted to you.

If you have any questions please ask.

Thank you.

*You can only book online for routine 10 minute GP appointment slots. Please DO NOT book online if you require an appointment that will take more than 10 minutes. This will include appointments for:

  • Smears & Swabs
  • Coil Fits
  • Vaccinations

Please also do not book on line if you require an Interpreter. It is necessary for staff to make a separate booking with the Interpreter Service and the requirement for this cannot be identified on line.

If you are in doubt please do not book online and contact the surgery reception in the normal manner on 01332 737777. For nurse appointments please telephone the surgery to book your appointment as you will need to provide additional information to ensure that you are booked into the correct clinic and for the correct length of time.
