Patient Online Project Patient Online Project Do you struggle to get an appointment with your GP? Did you know that you could order repeat prescriptions online? Would you like to access you medical records 24 hours a day, seven days a week? Right now less than 15% of patients in Hackney are registered to Patient Online Services. We believe that those patients who would most benefit from accessing services online are often those who are currently unable to. If you have struggled in the past with getting online or would like to register for Patient Online Services we want hear from you! Throughout September and October Social Action for Health are facilitating a series of workshops that will give you the skills to register to Patient Online Services. By the end of the session you will be registered. In addition we will be supporting GP practice and offering wider support to the community by delivering information stall in venues across the borough. Join our campaign as a patient or a tech champion. We want everyone who lives or works in the borough to support us and together we will bridge the digital divide. Home Events/Activities Blogs Fundraise Tech Champions I don't have access to the internet at home This week we spoke with Daniel, a Hackney resident based in London Field area, to find out more about his experiences of using the the internet and discussing the Patient Online Services. "I don't have the internet at home and I find new things difficult - the project sounds very interesting and I imagine it will help people but I find the internet a scary place and am always worried other people being able to access my personal details" "I have some health problems and when I visit my GP surgery they are helpful but generally I try to avoid making appointments."
