GP surgeries in Wolverhampton now offer the opportunity for you to confidently manage your own health by allowing you to book GP appointments, order repeat prescriptions and even access your GP record online using a computer, smartphone or tablet.

This new service from the NHS is called GP online services. It allows people in Wolverhampton to:

·         book appointments online, with a clearer view of available appointments, helping them to fit visiting their GP around their work/life schedule

·         request repeat prescriptions online, avoiding unnecessary visits or phone calls to their GP

·         view their GP health records online, including immunisation records often needed for occupational health or trips abroad

·         be more involved in their care if they have long-term health problems, by accessing test results and monitoring their condition

The service is quick and easy to use, and all patient data is kept securely. We would like to help more people to find out about this service and sign up for it.

If you or your voluntary group would like to find out for about how GP online services can help people to manage their own health and live with a health condition, visit www.nhs.uk/gponlineservices or contact england.patient-online@nhs.net
