Patient Online

Use online services at your GP practice from your computer, tablet or mobile phone.

All GP practices in Leicester City are now able to offer patients a range of online services to provide more choice and convenience for routine requests and put you in control of your health and wellbeing.

Sign up to GP online services and you’ll be able to use a website or app to:

  • book or cancel appointments online with a GP or nurse
  • order repeat prescriptions online
  • view parts of your GP record, including information about medication, allergies, vaccinations, previous illnesses and test results
  • view clinical correspondence such as hospital discharge summaries, outpatient appointment letters and referral letters

The service is free and available to everyone who is registered with a GP.

Patient Online has the added benefit of helping to improve the service you receive from your practice in other areas, such as reducing the volume of calls to the practice reception so you can speak to someone when you need to more quickly.

How can I start using GP online services?

NHS Choices has details of how to sign up here.

On their website you can also download a range of information leaflets about Patient Online, including a series of easy-read guides for people with learning disabilities.
