Sandra East, Granta Communications 
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.

Have you booked a trip abroad or planning to do so?
f you are seeking travel health advice, Granta Medical Practices offer a Travel Clinic Service.     

The first step is the complete a Travel Risk Assessment form so we can assess your risk. This risk assessment form can be downloaded from our website www.grantamedicalpractices.co.uk or collected from reception. Please fill it out fully and return it to us no later than 5 weeks before you travel.     

Once you have completed and returned the form, we will contact you by phone within one week to let you know if you need to attend for an appointment which we would then advise you to book. At your appointment the recommended vaccines or medications will be given and follow up injections planned. Unfortunately we cannot see you if you have not completed a Travel Risk Assessment form.     

Before your appointment you are advised to go to www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk. Look up the destination you are travelling to, print off the information, read it and bring it with you when you attend your appointment.     

You can also download our General Travel Advice sheet from our website or collect a copy from reception. For additional information you can visit the following websites: www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk, www.nathnac.org, www.fco.gov.uk/travel.     

Please note that some vaccinations are covered by the NHS and some will require payment. The clinician will make this clear when you make the appointment and you will be required to pay before your appointment.
