emis Patient Access
emis Patient Access is a simple, secure and efficient system which allows patients to order repeat medication online at a time of convenience, book or cancel appointments with a Doctor and view aspects of your medical record. The service is available for registration by patients aged 16 and over only.
Before you register and use this service we would ask you to be aware of the following guidance:
Online appointment booking and cancellation
You can book appointments with a GP of your choice up to 3 weeks in advance.
If you are unsure whether it is appropriate to see a Doctor or a Nurse please contact the surgery by telephone. You are limited to the number of appointments that you can book online at any one time.
Due to the many different types of nurse appointments we offer at the surgery we are unable to offer online booking for these. Please contact us by telephone as normal to book an appointment with one of our nurses.
If you wish to cancel an appointment we would ask that you do that online as soon as possible so that the time can be made available to another patient in need.
Alternatively appointments can be cancelled by telephone on 0161 928 9621.
Your medical record
You may have access to something in your record that you have forgotten about or may find upsetting, including test results before your doctor has spoken to you or when the surgery is closed and there is nobody available to talk to. You should consider whether you are comfortable with this before deciding whether to register for the service.
We monitor use of this service and hope that you will find it useful. However, if we feel the facility is being abused we reserve the right to revoke access. Inappropriate use would be booking but not attending or cancelling appointments, booking inappropriate appointments with your Doctor or using your name to book appointments for a family member.
