Patients of Bird in Eye Surgery can now book, cancel and rebook appointments online, securely order repeat prescriptions, view test results and view selected items from their medical record.
You will need to register at the Practice before using the system, when you will be supplied with a username and first password (which you can then update after first log-in).
Registering for SystmOnline
The registration is simple - but for security we will need you to come into the practice with some proof of ID before we can provide you with a username and first password. Acceptable ID is a photo driving licence or a passport, and proof of address (utility bill, bank statement etc.) dated within the last 3 months.
Parents will be able to have a username and password for their children. Similarly, carers of people with disabilities will be able to take a username and password for them.
Patient and Practice Benefit
Online access to appointment booking and repeat prescription ordering not only saves both time and money for the practice, allowing us to direct these funds into patient care, but also allows reception staff to focus on other key areas and provide a better service to patients. The service has benefits for patients without internet access too - online booking system means that less people will be ringing the surgery, so it makes the practice more accessible over the phone.
