The benefits of online access
Would you like to manage your GP appointments and prescriptions from home, and have access to your test results?      

You can do all of this and more by registering for SystmOnline, the patient online service available via our website. Once registered you can book, change and cancel your appointments, view your test results and have access to your coded medical records, as well as ordering your repeat medication and viewing your personal registered information.     

Application forms are available on our website, in our new patient pack, or you can pick one up from any Granta reception.  All you need to do is bring the completed form back, along with some photo ID. All applications will be processed within 48 working hours and confirmation of activation will be emailed / texted to you unless otherwise requested.

Thousands of appointments not attended at Granta Medical Practices
Did you know.     

In January Granta Medical Practice’s clinicians saw / spoke to 20,256 patients. This number includes urgent appointments, routine appointments and telephone appointments. 

Unfortunately, there were an extra 1,026 appointments that patients did not attend (DNA).    

February’s appointments totalled 17,876, but again there were an additional DNA’s - 1,043!     

Sometimes it can be difficult keeping to an appointment date and time. However, if you ring and cancel even half an hour beforehand we would be able to reuse your slot for another patient.     

Please say instead of DNA!
