You can monitor the progress of your request via your Patient Access homepage.
We monitor the use of this service and we are sure that you will find it useful. However, if we find any abuse of this service, we will revoke your access to the service.
The practice will take every measure to ensure that your Patient Access application is secure. It is your responsibility to ensure that your Patient Access account remains this way.
You are able to terminate or reset your account at any time by contacting the practice in writing. You may wish to do this if you think someone else knows your login details or if you have shared details with a family member or partner and no longer wish for them to know the details.
The University Medical Group reserves the rights to remove Patient Access from any patient without notice. This will in no way affect your registration at this practice.

In order for us to arrange this, it is necessary for the person giving permission and the representative to complete the form, signing to give consent. If the patient does not have capacity to consent to proxy access and it is considered to be in the best interests of the patient Section 1 of the form may be omitted.

GP Online Service
Via Patient Access, patients can check symptoms and be signposted to web-based information about their condition. The Online Health Advice feature gives access to a wealth of medical information including articles and videos.
By filling in a simple health enquiry form, patients can read information on how to treat their symptoms and what to do next. The form will then come through to the surgery who will review the information provided and respond within 48 hours. If the information provided by the patient indicates an urgent need for medical attention, they will be directed appropriately.
How does it work?
- Sign into or register for Patient Access at www.patientaccess.com

- Once you’ve read the advice, if you still need help, submit the details through the online form and a relevant staff member at the surgery will review it
