Burnham Health Centre offers the ability to book appointments online using Patient Access, an online application from our clinical system supplier EMIS.
The maximum number of appointments you are allowed to hold as far as the online system is concerned is 2 although you can book more than this from our reception team. If you already have 2 or more future appointments booked, Patient Access will not allow you the opportunity to book any additional ones.
PA Telephone Appt: A 5 minute on the day telephone appointment for dealing with a single issues such as conjunctivitis or a cough or cold. These are released online for booking at 7:30, 9 and 13.00 on the same day. ****PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY FOR THESE APPOINTMENTS*****
Following recent feedback and suggestions we have made some adjustments to some areas of the Patient Access appointments system;
We have reinstated some face to face appointments with the nursing team. From the 7th July patients will be able to book:
- Routine Bloods tests (Only if the tests have been requested by a GP)
- Routine Smear tests ( Only if you have received a routine recall letter)
- Contraception Pill Checks ( Only if it is a continuation and you are due for the regular 6 monthly nurse review)
Please be aware if the appointments are booked inappropriately they will be cancelled.
If you log on to Patient Access and are unable to see any appointments, it may be that none are available, or it may be that you already have 2 or more future appointments booked. You can still ring in and make an appointment via our reception team on 01628 666326.
Please be aware that if you book appointments online but then fail to either cancel or attend them, your ability to book online will be removed.
