The Department of Health and Social Care is holding a three-week roadshow of public sign-up sessions for GP Patient Access, the free digital facility that allows people to make GP appointments and view their own health information online.
The sessions will take place in GP practices around the Island, and people can attend any session, not just the one at their own practice:

Anyone who wishes to sign up for Patient Access – part of the Government’s wider Digital Strategy – will need to be aged 16 or over and bring photographic identification (driving licence or passport) with them.
Signing-on is not restricted to the organised sessions as it is possible for people to do so at their own GP practice at any time.
