Nearly 14 million patients across England are now using online services with their GP practice to book appointments, order repeat prescriptions and view their records and see test results.

Latest figures show an increase of 42% in people who are signed up for online services compared to the same time last year. This means 24% of patients – 13.9 million – in England are now registered online with their GP surgery.

The NHS Digital figures from February 2018 show an average of one million appointments are being made or cancelled online every month, and nearly 2.3 million prescriptions ordered online.

Patients can sign up for GP online services via NHS Choices.
