What is Patient Access?

With Patient Access, you can now access your local GP services at home, work or on the move — wherever you can connect to the internet. What's more, because Patient Access is a 24 hour online service you can do this in your own time, day or night.

Please note: your local practice may not offer every Patient Access feature. Ask at your surgery to find out which are available to you.

Patient Access is the new name for EMIS Access.

I had to quickly get more of one drug for muscle spasms recently, and rather than ring the surgery to explain, I typed a short note to the receptionist via an online form and it was delivered that day.
