Easier Access to Your Health Information

Patient Portal

•    book appointments
•    see their lab results
•    see their GP's clinical notes
•    see their current diagnosis
•    see a list of their medical conditions
•    see a list of the medications they are on
•    see their immunisation and vaccination history
•    receive reminders and recalls from the practice team
•    send and receive secure messages to and from their GP or a practice nurse.
