The practice computer system we use in order to record patient clinical data is Emis Web. you can see the system here
This change was made in the best interests of patient care as the new system allows for the practice to have more up to date access to all of the clinical information we use to support patient care.
There are some benefits to this change and some of these are detailed below :-
- We can now send out appointment reminders by text messages. We will do this for all patients who give us their mobile telephone number
- It is still useful to give us your up to date mobile number anyway so we can contact you if needed.
- Patients can book their appointments online and also request their repeat medication online. This will save you having to wait for the surgery to be open to get this organised as it is a 24 hour service as long as the system is online and working.
