Helping your healthcare routine fit your lifestyle
Not everyone can access their GP surgery during its normal opening hours. SystmOne helps by letting you manage your appointments and repeat medication over the internet.
All you need to do is speak to practice staff to get your user name and password. Then you can start using the SystmOne Service.
Managing your appointments online
Booking your next appointment over the internet is easy. You can do it any time without waiting for surgery phone lines to open. So, whether it's the middle of the night, your lunch break at work, or even if you are away on holiday, you can login and secure an appointment within seconds.
Forgotten when your appointment is? Login to SystmOne and see it. You can also change the time or cancel your appointment if it's no longer needed.
Manage your medication online
If you find it hard to get to the practice to order your next repeat prescription, SystmOne could make your life easier.
Simply login to SystmOne and view a list of the medication you have been prescribed. Select the prescription you need and click the 'Request Medication' button.
All you have to do then is go and collect your prescription as normal whenever its ready.
Need to change your details?
With SystmOne it's easy. Just login and change your phone numbers or address.
You can also complete questionnaires online to monitor specific health issues or give feedback on your practice.
Named Accountable GP
From 1st April 2015, practices are required under the General Practice Contract 2015-2016 to allocate a named, accountable GP to all patients, including children. All patients registered before 1st April 2015 will be allocated a GP before the end of June 2015. All new patients registering after 1st April 2015 will be informed about their named GP at registration. Please ask your doctor/nurse or the reception staff who your named accountable GP is. Should you express a wish for this to be changed to another GP we will do our best to accommodate your wishes.
Please be aware that this does not affect your ability to make an appointment with any of the GPs in the practice of your choosing.
