Patient Access - Proxy access now available
You can now use Patient Access on behalf of loved ones and those you care for to book appointments, order repeat prescriptions and, where appropriate, view and share medical records.
Who is this aimed at?
This is designed for all users of Patient Access who need to use the service on behalf of someone else. This may include:
- Familes with young children
- Those who care for a family member or friend who finds using the internet difficult
- Professional carers
Why are we doing this?
We have received many requests from both patients and GPs ove the past year to build this capability, and we've been working hard to ensure that we've built it in a way that is simple to use and most importantly, clinically safe.
How does it work?
You can view more information here on how this works and what it looks like in Patient Access.
How do I access this feature?
To use Patient Acces on behalf of your loved ones or dependents, you must request access via your GP.
