How does PATCHS work?

PATCHS is a way to access your GP practice Online but like all appointments there are a limited number per day. Once these appointments are filled PATCHS will be closed until the next day. To find out more about why your GP practice may be unavailable for requests on PATCHS please click here.

Once you have registered, you can access PATCHS by clicking the link on your registered branch practice website or opening the PATCHS app on your smartphone. Login by entering your registered email address & password.
