Save time – do it online! GP online services give patients the option to book appointments, request repeat prescriptions and view their GP records, using their computer, tablet or smartphone rather than having to phone or visit their practice.
If you are not already registered for GP online services please let a member of the practice team know you would like to use this service or follow the link to start the registration process. patient.emisaccess.co.uk/Account/Login
Ashton patients registering for Patient Access will need to put in RM1 4QJ (the practice postcode) and not their own postcode to find North Street Medical Care, but please put in your own postcode when adding your address details later in the registration process.
