A handy, helpful Digital Day is being held at Rutland County Council’s offices in Oakham next week, showing people how to access local GP and primary healthcare services online.
The Rutland Digital Day has been organised by Rutland’s Primary Care Network and runs from 9.00am until 3.30pm on Tuesday 11 February. The event is open to anyone who would like learn more about accessing local healthcare services via the internet.
Experienced staff will be on hand throughout the event to answer any questions and teach useful skills, including:
- How to use your GP surgery’s website
- How to book a doctor’s appointment online
- How to order repeat medication for someone you care for
This event is free to attend. Anyone wanting to set up online access to their local GP services just needs to provide a form of identification, such as a driver’s license, passport or a utility bill showing their name and address.
There will also be a chance to meet other health and wellbeing services that offer support to people living in Rutland.
Using GP services online can save time by making it quicker to book appointments, get prescriptions and view test results.
If you'd like to know more about online access but can’t attend the Digital Day, please speak to your GP surgery or visit the NHS England website.
