GP online services allow you to access a range of services via your computer, mobile or tablet. Once you have signed up, you will be able to:
- book and manage appointments online
- renew or order repeat prescriptions online
- view parts of your GP record, including information about medication, allergies, vaccinations, previous illnesses and test results
Rotherham Health App
The Rotherham Health App works similarly to SystmOnline in the way that it allows patients to access healthcare digitally. By downloading the App patients are able to manage their own healthcare at the push of a few buttons.
- To apply visit rotherhamhealthapp.co.uk
- The practice must have proof of your identification for patients to be accepted by the practice.
Once your request has been approved patients can;
1. Book and manage appointments in hours and out of hours.
2. Symptom checker, and assess your symptoms
3. View medical record and test results
4. Manage your medication
5. You can access your medical record on any mobile device, laptop, tablet, desktop, 24/7.
Extended Hub appointments are also available for patients to book via the Rotherham Health App.
You can still contact the practice by phone or in person, this is just another option, which other patients have found is more convenient and saves them time. More information including “how to” leaflets and videos of patients and why they are using GP online services are available at www.nhs.uk/gponlineservices
