Book your Appointments via Patient Access
How does Patient Access work?
Herschel Medical Centre uses a clinical information system to manage patient records. Each time you have a consultation with a clinician or test results are sent back from the lab, the details are recorded to build up your medical history and help with your future care. The practice also uses the system to book appointments, send letters and update your contact details. Patient Access is a website that displays information from the practice's system and allows you to:
View and book available appointments.
View your medication and request further prescriptions.
Send messages to your practice.
View your medical record.
