Penygraig Surgery is introducing appointment bookings and requests for repeat prescriptions over the internet.

Using the new internet site called My Health Online, you are able to book an appointment.  You will get confirmation back immediately online, so there is no need to re-confirm by phone or email.  Just arrive promptly on the day.  You can also view any appointments you have already made or cancel them if necessary.

Using the internet, you don’t have to visit the practice to hand over your repeat prescription request.  Once requested simple collect your prescription as usual.

Before you start using My Health Online, you must register your details at reception as you will need to provide some proof of identity.  When you have done this you will then be provided with PIN numbers to register online and set up your account.

Your personal details are protected using the highest standards of internet security to prevent them being intercepted.  It is your responsibility to keep your log in details safe.  Only you and your GP surgery are able to see this information.  If you have any further enquiries please ask at reception.

(Please note: We require a unique email address for each applicant to MHOL, eg husband and wife cannot use the same email address for this system, unless its for children.)
