Latest news and information from Newlands Medical Centre

Book a non-urgent appointment online

If you are not registered for our patient portal but would still like to be able to book a non-urgent appointment online at your convenience then check out the orange button "Book Now" on the Home page of our website.  Just follow the simple steps.

Please note:

  • you should book with your usual doctor only.  We reserve the right to contact you and reschedule bookings made with other doctors.
  • you cannot book on the day appointments online - please phone the medical centre to book for the same day.

 

Ability to view your consultation notes via our patient portal

If you have registered, and activated, your access to our patient portal (ManageMyHealth) you can now view most of your consultation notes dated after 1 May 2018 when we activated this function.

This is a great way to refresh your memory about any instructions or advice that you have been given by your GP; changes to your medication doses; plans for ongoing treatment; etc.

Not yet registered for the portal?  Download the form on the "Enrol" page of our website and bring or send it in to us.

Patient portal-have you considered it?

Over 30% of our patients are already using the patient portal.  We are now inviting all patients over the age of 16 years to register. This is a confidential and secure way to access your health information online, and to communicate with your GP.  You can view test results, request repeat prescriptions, and book non-urgent appointments at a time convenient to you.  There is also an app so you can access your health records anywhere, at anytime.

For more information check out the video link on the Home page.

Health Care Home - We're making some changes for the better.

We want to make it easier for you to get in touch with us. We upgraded our phone systems so that we can answer your call more efficiently.  
We also have Health Care Online, our Patient Portal, which allows you to contact your GP, book appointments, and see lab results and other clinical information, online.  Going forward, as a portal user, you will be able to communicate with your GP in person, over the phone, or online.  We may be able to save you a trip in to see us if you don’t need to, which may be more convenient for you.
