PLEASE MAKE AN APPOINTMENT WITH THE NURSE FOR YOUR HEALTH CHECK

What is an NHS Health Check?

The NHS Health Check is a health check-up for adults in England aged 40-74. It's designed to spot early signs of stroke, kidney disease, heart disease, type 2 diabetes or dementia. As we get older, we have a higher risk of developing one of these conditions. An NHS Health Check helps find ways to lower this risk.

Patient Participation Group

We are actively seeking more people to join our on line group if you are interested please email  westbury.medicalcentre@nhs.net or phone 01743 884727 and please email us with any thoughts/ suggestions that you would like us to consider

Online access for Patients

As a practice we are keen to ensure we provide our patients with access to our services in a way that suits them. In doing this we are also committed to ensure that we continue to comply with the law associated with Access to Health Records Act 1990 and  GDPR 2018.

In recent years technology has developed at such apace that we are no longer dependant on traditional methods for providing access to the surgery i.e. Booking appointments by telephone or visiting the surgery and making requests for repeat prescriptions on paper.

We are therefore implementing a new system, alongside our current telephone/paper based systems which will enable patients’ to book appointments and make requests for repeat prescriptions via the internet, via the Internet on a smart phone or via the dedicated SystmOnline iOS App available from the Apple App Store.

Please read the above attachment before continuing

When registered you will be able to:



    •  Find available doctor appointment slots

    •  Book new appointments. Appointments may be booked up to a maximum of 21 days ahead.

    •  View appointments you have already booked

    •  Cancel appointments

    •  Make request for your repeat prescriptions

    •  Check how many issues of a prescription you have left and when you last requested an item

    •  Check the dosage instructions of any prescription item

    •  Access information about the prescription item from your online access account



To ensure we do this and protect their rights to confidentiality and comply with Access to Health Records Act 1990 and GDPR2018 we have developed this policy to ensure we comply.

We will provide online access to our booking and repeat prescription requesting systems for:



    • any patient over the age of 16 to access their own online access account;

    • parents/guardians to access the online access account for any of their children under the age of 16;[1]

    • formal carers with access to patients’ online access account who they are recognised as formal carer of;

    • a power of attorney with access to patients who have a legally recognised as power of attorney for.



We also ask that patients use the system responsibly so have some basic terms and conditions which we ask the applicant to sign up to.

Once we have received the correct documentation (see below) we will take copies of the identity documents you provide.   Once we have processed your application we will provide you with a document containing the pin number and log-on details which will allow you to access the online access account you have requested.

When you have received your pin number and log-on details you can visit https://systmonline.tpp-uk.com/ on any PC, Laptop or Tablet device.   You can also access your Online Access account via the Apple AppStore (Search for SystmOneline).
