Secure and easy access online to appointments and information

We are working with Dr Doctor, a digital health company, to introduce a new Patient Portal in 2023.

This year we began using Dr Doctor for text and email outpatient appointment reminders and by the Summer this will be available for all appointment reminders. This is available on your smart phone, tablet, or desktop computer.

We will send you a text message (07860039092) and or email with your appointment details.

If your contact details have changed please tell us next time you see us, or contact us on 0344 811 81118. This will ensure that you benefit from all the Patient Portal features. 

What can you use the Patient Portal for?

As well as appointment reminders, we’ve also recently started using online video consultations and soon we will also be introducing additional features which will allow you to:

  • View digital letters about your appointments/care
  • Book, cancel or change appointments
  • Access healthcare information about your treatment
  • Ask questions
  • Initiate your follow up care

The Patient Portal is available from any smart phone, tablet or desktop computer. We’ve created a list of frequently asked questions below for any queries.

Log onto the Patient Portal here:

Currently, you can use the Portal to access video consultations and view your appointments, simply login with your surname, date of birth and postcode, and we’ll send you a text message with a secure code to access the Portal. If we only have a landline for you, we will send you a voice message with the code.

You can also login to set your personal preferences for appointment reminders via email and/or SMS text messages through the portal.

Why introduce a Patient Portal?

The Patient Portal will allow us to:

  • improve how we communicate with our patients
  • deliver letters to patients faster
  • reduce confusion from lost letters or letters arriving in the wrong order
  • save the NHS money by reducing the amount of paper and postage costs
  • reduce our environmental impact
  • provide a text reminder to patients before their appointments
