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 find accessing GP services online is a stress-free experience Earlier this month we caught up with Raymond, a Hackney resident based in Springfield, to find out more about his experiences registering and using the GP Online Services. “I registered with patient online services as a result of becoming increasingly frustrated with booking appointments and accessing GP services over the telephone. When I called my surgery over the telephone it was always engaged and when I did get through there was never any appointments available. Being able to access patient online services allows me to book appointments day or night, order repeat prescriptions and overall make accessing what I need to in my GP practice so much quicker. I use the service up to five times a month depending on my health needs and overall it makes my experience of gaining access to my GP stress-free.” Raymond, Hackney resident.
