Information about the Patient Portal
Use of the Patient Portal allows us to collect the required information from our patients prior to their arrival as opposed to filling in forms in the practice. This minimises physical contact helping to prevent the spread of viruses and the information in the COVID-19 pre-appointment questionnaire provides us with information to ensure that we are not putting our staff and patients at risk by admitting a patient with possible Covid-19.
