Online services for Middleton Lodge Practice users

People registered with our surgery can now book appointments and request repeat prescriptions at a time convenient to them, thanks to GP online services.

These services enable people to book GP appointments and request repeat prescriptions via their computer, smartphone or tablet at a time that suits them rather than calling or visiting the surgery.

This approach can save people a phone call or journey to the surgery, and allow them to do what they need to when the surgery is closed. Patients living with a long term health condition can also benefit by having a greater involvement in their healthcare as they can access test results and keep track of their treatment.

All patient information is kept securely. To access SystmOnline click here. Smartphone and tablet users can also download the systmonline app, which gives users the same choice in how they access GP online services.

This service works alongside traditional methods of accessing services, it does not replace them. By allowing people who want to make appointments and order prescriptions this way, it should become easier for others to get through on the phone to the surgery during busy periods.

If you want to register for GP online services you will need to fill out a form at the surgery and show two forms of ID one of which should have a photo (such as a UK passport or driving licence) and the other should have your address (such as a council tax bill). If you don’t have photo ID or anything with your address on it, it doesn’t mean you will not be able to use online services, our surgery staff may be able to help.

To register for GP online services, drop in and ask us, or to find out more visit the NHS Choices website at www.nhs.uk/GPonlineservices

Accountable / Named GP for All Patients

From 1 April 2015, and before the 31st March 2016, practices are required under the contract to allocate a named, accountable GP, who is responsible for overall care at the practice, to all patients (including children). Middleton Lodge has always operated a personal, named GP list and therefore if you are registered with the practice you will already have a named accountable GP.  For those patients who express a preference as to which GP that is the practice will make every reasonable effort to accommodate the request

New patients joining the practice will be allocated a named GP at the point of registration. 

If you would like to confirm who your named accountable GP is please ask the receptionist when you next visit the surgery.  

Having a named GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the practice. Your named GP may not always be available and, if your needs are urgent, you may need to discuss them with an alternative doctor.

The practice can confirm that all patients registered with the Middleton Lodge Practice have been allocated a named accountable GP
