THE BEACON HEALTH GROUP - ONLINE APPOINTMENT BOOKING
To use this facility the patient must first obtain a user name and password from the surgery in order to log in. This must be done in person at the surgery and will only be provided by the receptionist upon production of photo ID by the patient - such as passport, photo driving licence or student card.
Direct Access gives you access to your own online services
Proxy access allows you to have access to another patient's online services
Patients aged 16 and above who are capable of making decisions about their own healthcare can have access to their online services.
These patients will be offered direct access.
An applicant can have proxy access to another patient's online services if;
- the patient is aged 16 or over and lacks capacity to make decisions about their healthcare.
- the patient has given their written consent to allow the applicant proxy access
- the patient is aged 0-10 and the applicant can prove parental responsibility*
Proxy access must be verified with legal documentation or authorised by a GP.
* to prove parental responsibility please bring with you the birth or adoption certificate along with your own photographic proof of ID.
The practice has made the decision not to allow any online access for patients aged 11-15 due to data protection and confidentiality issues. For more information please see the following link:-
