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.
If you want in support the patient online project based in Hackney and become a Tech champion, please contact Emma or Irena at [email protected] or 0208 510 1970
"It 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 wanted to invest some time into helping others and
educating myself more and this project allows me to do this."
"I don't have the internet at home and am very suspicious of it"
This week while completing our outreach and promotion of the project we spoke to Cynthia a Hackney resident based in Homerton area, to find out more about his experiences registering and using the Patient Online Services.
Today our outreach activities promoted the project to the people of Hackney, reaching seven different ethnicities in three area localities of the borough.
While completing our promotion and community outreach work we spoke with couple John and Jean, both in their late 70’s, both Hackney resident based in Clapton area, to discuss the Patient Online Project.
