IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT – CLINICAL SYSTEM UPGRADE
We are currently upgrading our electronic Clinical System.
This service will be suspended from Friday 16th August 2019. We will accept online services registration forms but are now not registering patients for Online Services until the end of September 2019
Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
Sidcup Medical Centre
It’s easy to book appointments and order repeat prescriptions online, at home or on your smartphone/tablet device. Please complete the online services registration form, and bring to the surgery with some photo ID (such as a passport or driving licence) and one of our staff can register you for the service.
Once we’ve registered you at the practice, you will receive an email you need to complete registration online. The 'Patient Access' help page for registration is available here.
Alternatively you can register for a basic account here. A basic account will allow you to book appointments but you still need to bring photo ID to the surgery to upgrade to a full account to order repeat medications.
If you are already registered, you can simply log-in to the online services website using your unique username and password – created when you registered.
GP online services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every day of the year, so it can often be easier and more convenient than a phone call or making a special journey to our practice. Occasionally you may find www.patientaccess.com unavailable due to essential maintenance. This is frequently scheduled for around 10pm in the evening. If you encounter a 'Practice is Currently Unavailable' message please try again at a different time.
You can also request access to online services on behalf of somebody you care for.
Why you should register for online services?
- Save yourself a phone call – logging online to book an appointment takes just a minute
- It’s easier to order your repeat prescriptions – you don't need to journey to the practice or wait around on the phone, you can see which repeat prescriptions need to be ordered and only order the ones that you need
- It’s more convenient for you – online services are available 24/7, every day of the year so you don't need to wait until the GP practice is open
- You can also update your demographic details – including telephone numbers and email addresses to make sure that you receive reminders and information from your practice
