Sharing your Medical Records
Would you like us to make your medical records accessible to other NHS organisations who may provide you with care, for example the local extended hours GP surgeries or Urgent Care centre?
When you receive care from another organisation, they will always ask your permission to view your GP record, however, you also need to tell TBMG that you are happy to share other records with us. Next time you are contact the surgery, please ask one of the team to update your sharing preferences. Please click here for more information about sharing your medical record.

Have you registered for Online Access yet?
Over 4,000 of our patients currently benefit from online access which allows them to book and cancel appointments, order repeat prescriptions and view a summary of their medical record 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Online access is available to all patients aged 16 years and over. Please take a look at our Online Services page for further information.
Electronic Prescription Services (EPS)
Since we introduced access to the Electronic Prescription Service in September 2014 almost 10,000 of our patients have nominated their preferred pharmacy and are benefitting from the service as they no longer have to visit the surgery to pick up a paper prescription. Instead, their GP sends it to the place they choose, saving them time. Patients also have more choice about where they get their medication from because it can be collected from a pharmacy near where they live, work or shop.
More information about EPS, including answers to frequently asked questions is available by clicking on the following link Electronic Prescription Service, or speak to your local pharmacy.
