Keeping well over winter, how GP online services can help
It's important to look after yourself, especially over the winter months. The cold weather can be bad for your health, particularly in children, the elderly and for people with long-term health conditions such as diabetes or heart disease. There are lots of things you can do to keep you and your family well this winter.
GP online services at Farnham Dene Medical Practice can help people better manage their health this winter. These services enable patients to book GP appointments, request repeat prescriptions, view test results and their medical record via their computer, smartphone or tablet at a time that suits them, anywhere, anytime – 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Patients who require repeat prescriptions can request these from the comfort of their own home, rather than venturing out in the cold or wet weather to drop their request off at the practice. You will also be able to review which medication you should be taking, the dosage and when it should be taken – helping to improve your understanding of your medication.
