Managing Appointments with SystmOnline

You will be able to see up to five past appointments and all future appointments. You will also be able to book and cancel appointments.

Your practice may limit the number of future appointments that you can have at any one time. If you have already reached this limit and would like to book another appointment, you should contact your practice by telephone or in person.

Viewing Past/Future Appointments

Click the View Past Appointments/View Future Appointments link on the Home Page, or click the Past Appointments/Future Appointments button on the main menu bar.

This page shows the date, day, start and end time of past appointments as well as the location, clinician and booking status, e.g. 'Booked'.

Click Details to see the full address and any special instructions, e.g. 'Please remember to bring your medication.'

To print these details, click Print.

Booking an Appointment

Providing you have not already reached your practice's limit for the number of future appointments, you can book an appointment using this service.

Click the Book Appointment link on the Home Page or the Book Appointment button on the main menu bar.

The page displayed shows details of all the sessions at your GP practice that are available for online booking. The table shows the date an appointment is available, the earliest and latest slot times, as well as the location, clinician and session type.

Your practice may have decided to allow you to book more than two weeks in advance. If they have, a drop-down list will be available for you to select dates further in the future. Select an option from the list and click Show.

Click View Available Appts at the end of the row for the session you require.

A list of appointments is displayed showing the appointment type, start and end time, and duration of the appointment. The most useful columns for you are 'Start Time' and 'End Time'.

Click Book at the end of the row for the appointment you require.

Check the details of the appointment, including the full address - if your practice operates from more than one site, check that this is where you want to go. If appropriate, enter the reason for your appointment in the Reason field, e.g. Blood Pressure check. This will help practice staff to prepare for your appointment. Bear in mind, however, that any information you enter may be visible to all practice staff and not just to the clinician you are going to see.

To continue without booking the appointment, click Cancel.

To confirm the appointment, click Book Appointment. The appointment is confirmed.

To print the details, click Print. Otherwise, click Back or any other menu option.

Cancelling an Appointment

To cancel an appointment:

  1. Go to the the Future Appointments page and click the Cancel Appointment button relating to the appropriate appointment.
  2. Check the appointment details and click Cancel this appointment.
  3. To continue without cancelling the appointment, click Back or any other menu option; otherwise, click Close.

Managing Prescriptions with SystmOnline

For certain drugs, you can request a new prescription.

Click the Current Prescriptions link on the Home Page, or the Current Prescriptions button on the main menu bar.

All current repeat prescriptions are listed with the drug, dosage, quantity, last issued date and status. An empty tick box in the left-hand column means you can ask for a new prescription for that drug.

To request a repeat prescription:

  1. Select the drug by ticking the box in the left-hand column. If the item you require is not listed or if you need to include further information with your request, type the details into the Medication Request Notes field. When providing this information, you should bear in mind that it may be visible to all practice staff.
  2. Click Request Medication. The Medication Order Summary is displayed, stating that a request has been sent to the practice to re-prescribe the item(s), and that the prescription will be ready for collection in two working days (after 2pm).
  3. Click Return to Current Medication to return to the Current Prescriptions page where the status of the drug will show that it has been requested.

Registering at this Practice with SystmOnline

If your GP practice operates a service allowing you to send an online patient registration request, you can do it at any time (you don't need to attend the practice during normal opening hours):

  1. Go to your practice's normal website and follow the relevant link, e.g. Self Registration. You will be taken to the SystmOnline Login page.
  2. Click Register with this practice at the foot of the Login page. You will then see a form that you need to fill in. A random verification code is displayed against coloured blocks at the top of the form.
  3. Enter this code in the field underneath.
  4. Complete the rest of the registration form. The fields marked '*This is a required field' are mandatory. You should have all mandatory details already, e.g. your date of birth and address. If you know the information to complete the non-mandatory fields, you may do so. This includes things like correspondence address, NHS Number and ethnicity.
  5. To return to the SystmOnline Login page without sending the registration request, click Back.
  6. Click Submit to send the registration request to the practice. If you have left any mandatory fields blank or entered any information incorrectly (e.g. dates in the wrong format), they will be flagged and you must enter a new verification code at the top of the page, ensure all fields are correctly completed and click Submit again.

Your practice will then receive your details and will process your registration. If you do not hear from them within the next few days, it may be a good idea to contact them.

Your practice may wish you to complete a form. If this is the case, a message will be displayed after you click Submit, confirming that your registration request was sent successfully and asking you to fill in a GMS1 form.

To go to the GMS1 form, click the button at the foot of the page.

You can complete this form online and then print it, or print out a blank copy and complete it by hand.

At the foot of the page, click Print to print the form.

Once you have successfully registered and have visited the practice for your first appointment, practice staff can provide you with a user name and password for the SystmOnline service, allowing you to manage your appointments and prescriptions online and change your contact details.
