AskmyGP instructions - Registering for the first time and making a medical request

Getting clinical and administrative help at the Nightingale Practice is going to get quicker and easier, using your smartphone, tablet or computer anytime anywhere.

This is all thanks to your feedback.

 From the middle of August 2020 we are changing our appointment system.

 We hope that this new system will improve your experience of the practice and as always we would welcome your feedback online (care opinion) or why not join our virtual patient group

Why a new system?

Feedback from patients has always been very positive when they have spoken to or seen a healthcare professional however, trying to get through to the surgery by phone proved to be constantly difficult.

Our new system allows patients to get the right help from the practice team through making a request on-line, freeing up the phones for those patients who are the most vulnerable and find it most difficult to get through to us.
