Patient Access sees a 33% increase in patients signing up for online GP services

02 Sep 2019

There has been a huge increase in patients using online GP services to book appointments and repeat medications at their local surgery using Patient Access.

The platform has seen a 33% rise in registrations, from six million to eight million, since the re-launch of the NHS-Digital-approved app just over a year ago.

The increased popularity of online services could help hard-pressed GPs across the country, with one revealing that it is saving his practice 8.5 days of admin each month.


“Patient Access has a clean, modern, intuitive interface and I think that has encouraged more patients to use it.”
