Keeping well over winter, how GP online services can help
It's important to look after yourself, especially over the winter months. The cold weather can be bad for your health, particularly in children, the elderly and for people with long-term health conditions such as diabetes or heart diseases. There are lots of things you can do to keep you and your family well this winter. GP online services are available at The Clapton Surgery to help people better manage their health this winter. These services enable patients to book GP appointments, request repeat prescriptions and check test results via their computer, smartphone or tablet at a time that suits them, anywhere, anytime – 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Patients who require repeat prescriptions can request these from the comfort of their own home, rather than venturing out in the cold or wet weather to drop their request off at the practice. You will also be able to review which medication you should be taking, the dosage and when it should be taken – helping to improve your understanding of your medication. If you want to register for GP online services you will need to fill out a form at the practice and show two forms of ID one of which should have a photo (such as a UK passport or driving licence) and the other should have your address (such as a council tax bill). If you don’t have photo ID or anything with your address on it, it doesn’t mean you will not be able to use online services, our practice staff may be able to help. To register for GP online services, drop in and ask us, or to find out more visit the NHS Choices website at www.nhs.uk/GPonlineservices
