How do I book an appointment?
By contacting your own GP practice.
What can I expect at a consultation with a GP?
One of the added benefits of the Primary Care Network extended access service is that the GP will have access to view your medical record during your visit. Having access to view your medical record means that the clinician will have a greater understanding of your medical history and health needs and can then choose the treatment that is right for you.
The clinician will ask you for your consent before accessing your medical record. Using this service will not affect your registration at your usual GP practice.
You will be able to book routine appointments 2 weeks in advance.
Who will have access to my medical record?
Only authorised staff within the service will have access to view your medical record. Your medical information will be treated with the strictest of confidentiality. All City and Hackney GP practices have agreed to sign up to a data sharing agreement which sets out what information will be shared, how and when.
What if I don’t want my medical records to be shared?
If you don’t want your medical records to be viewed then you will need to tell the receptionist or GP at your own practice when they are booking the appointment. They will then offer you an appointment at your own GP practice.
