On Line access is an NHS app allows you to order your prescription or book your appointment also prove you have had your covid vaccinations.
Using NHS Login or obtaining a linkage key
The NHS app and Evergreen Life can both use the NHS login which you can set up from home without coming to the surgery, and can give you full access to your record as your identity is verified from official Government records. Other apps including Patient Access requires a linkage key which can only be obtained after we have verified your identity. We can now do this by telephone or video call instead of requiring attendance in person with photo ID. Once you have sent in the access request form we can then arrange for the telephone or video verification call.
If access is required for someone else's medical record, if you are a carer, or parent of a child under 16 you can register for proxy access- Proxy Access allows someone to act on behalf of the patient under legislation rulings. Level of access is dependent on the circumstances. Appointment booking, repeat medication, and access to part medical records, can be accessed by the proxy once the person has been linked to their account. https://support.patientaccess.com/proxy
