Link for SystmOnLine
Click on the link below to take you to the portal for accessing SystmOnLine with your username and password.
This is where you can order repeat medication, see basic information in your record, book and cancel appointments. If you do not have a username and password you can get one by attending the practice in person and requesting it from the receptionist.
During June there were 88 appointments that were booked and then not attended.
This is approximately 21 hours of appointment time that could have been offered to other patients, and is equivalent to 4 and a half days' worth of GP face to face consultation time.
Please remember to cancel an appointment if you no longer need it, there are always other patients who would be able to use this time. Thank you
