When you register in the app, there will be a series of checks to confirm your identity. You WILL NOT have to go into your surgery to register if you have a passport or photo card driving licence.

You can choose to log in using fingerprint recognition, facial recognition or username and password of your choice.

You can now also access NHS App services from the browser on your desktop or laptop computer.

You can still contact the Practice by phone, 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 explaining why they are using GP online services are available at www.nhs.uk/gponlineservices

Proxy Access

You can now request to act as a proxy for children, relatives and dependants that you care for and are patients at Creech Medical Centre using Patient Access or the NHS App.

This enables a parent, family member or carer to act on behalf of the patient with their access tailored accordingly. The proxy feature includes appointment booking, repeat medication requests, text messaging and, where applicable, access to medical records, and can easily be accessed by the proxy once the patient has been linked.

For children under 11 parents or authorised carers should complete a proxy access form. This access becomes restricted to appointment booking and repeat medication requests for minors aged 11-16 and then the rights are automatically switched off when the child reaches 16.
