Patient online services
Seascale Health centre offer patients the facilities to view their medical information, book and cancel appointments online and order repeat medication through our surgery website on the home page.
We use a system called 'Patient Access' to do this and if you wish to use this service, please ask at Reception for a registration form for online access.
If you're not sure yet, think about it like this:
Would you like to check what the Doctor said to you in your consultation to be sure you understand?
Would you like to read your hospital consultant letters to make sure you understand, recall what happens next and what you should do?
Would you like to see a list of your significant events with info to help you tell your story 100 times?
Would you like to check your blood test or other results so you can monitor, without repeatedly ringing the practice.
Would you like to share these results with other health professionals to avoid them needing to repeat tests?
These are all good reasons to have access to your records online and over the last few months we are increasing the numbers of patients who not only order repeat medication and book appointments online but wish to have full access to their records.
We will check with you to ensure that you understands the responsibility to keep this record confidential and to access the information with responsibility.
CONSENT: If you have decided that you wish to view your detailed records, please complete this survey. Our Doctors will check your responses and we will get back to you to confirm when access is enabled

If you would like to 'try before you buy' - you can see what a test patient record looks like.
It is Mickey Mouse and we use this as our test patient record and it is completely fictitious. This will give you an idea of the type of information you can access from a typical health record (this one is very big as we have made all kinds of entries in it) and how the appointment viewing and repeat prescription ordering works.
First log in here to EMIS ACCESS: As this is only a test patient you do not need to register. Also please do not change the password as others may want to use it.
