GP surgeries to host online services sign-up sessions

The Island's health officials will be helping Manx residents sign up for a service that allows them to make medical appointments online.

The Department of Health and Social Care is running a three-week roadshow at GP practices to encourage more patients to use GP Patient Access.

The free digital facility lets people make appointments to see their doctor, as well as view their own health information online.

Each GP practice will hold a two-hour sign-up session, starting with Southern Group Practice next Monday

Patients must be over 16 and bring photo ID with them to sign up for the service.

Full details of the times and dates of the sign-up sessions can be found on the Government's website.
