Patient Access and SMS Facilities

After careful thought and consideration, Whitstable Medical Practice is pleased to announce that it is now offering patients both of the above facilities. We believe that the combination of these services will offer greater convenience to patients and improve the services that we offer.

Patient Access

Patients can register online now at patient.emisaccess.co.uk or by asking at reception for a registration form. Patient Access will enable the following:

  • Online appointment booking and cancellation
  • Request your repeat medication online. This is faster and more direct than the current methods and you will also be able to check back online as to the status of your prescription.
  • Update your personal details directly into our clinical system – no need to complete a form or come into surgery
  • Download the free app which will allow you to do all of the above from a mobile phone as well as a computer, laptop or tablet.

SMS

Appointments

We are now able to text patients to remind them about appointments, as well as any other important health information. Patients will also be able to correspond with the surgery via text message, for example replying ‘CANCEL’ to an appointment reminder will mean that your appointment is cancelled without you needing to call the surgery.

Please be assured that your number will not be used by anyone outside the Practice and you may object to this service if you wish.
