Link to a patient as a proxy

The option to link to a patient as a proxy is only available when your GP practice uses a specific clinical system. If your GP practice uses a different clinical system, the option will not be available when you log in.

Use this option if you have been registered as a proxy user for a patient or relative, and already have a Patient Access account.

Once you have been issued with a registration letter for the patient, you can link to the patient using the steps below:

  1. Sign in with your existing details. 
  2. Click on your name in the top right-hand corner, then select Account.
  3. Scroll down to the Link a GP practice or person section.
  4. Select Link a person at another GP practice.
  5. Enter the details from the registration letter.
    You are now linked to the patient you are caring for and you'll have access to all enabled services.
