Giltbrook Surgery uses the NHS App and the Patient Knows Best extension to offer patients services online. You can download the NHS App free of charge from your app store, or access it via a desktop computer.
What is the NHS App?
The NHS App is changing the way in which patients throughout the UK can take control of their health and care. Open to anyone over the age of 13 with an NHS account, the App has a range of features that benefit users, saving them time and unnecessary visits to healthcare settings, all through a single application. Features and benefits include:
- Access to health and care records
- Ordering repeat prescriptions
- Monitoring and tracking symptoms
- Access to 111 Online health information
- Managing appointments
- Giving family and friends proxy access to your records where needed
- Requesting administrative and medical advice
Further to this, for users in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, additional functionality is included within the NHS App. Y
To register to use the NHS App, please bring a form of photo ID (like a passport or driving licence) to the surgery and complete the online services form. The surgery aims to complete your registration within 48 hours and will send you the necessary log-in codes either via email or text (you can choose how you receive them).
More detailed information on this process can be found at: https://www.nhs.uk/nhs-app/
Proxy accounts/ Linked profiles
NHS App proxy accounts, or linked profiles, are a subsection of the NHS App that allows one patient to access the online record of another patient. For example, a patient may want a proxy account so they can order their child’s repeat prescription. To apply for proxy access to another patient's NHS App account, please bring a form of photo ID to the surgery. You will need to fill in the 'Manor Surgery Online Proxy Account Form' and read an information leaflet about creating and using proxy accounts.
