GP health app goes viral

Over 3,000 use online service

Patients at the Island's GP surgeries can now manage their medical records themselves - using nothing more than a smartphone.

Over 3,000 residents have signed up to the online Patient Access service since it was launched last year.

Users can book appointments, order prescriptions and access information using a web browser, or the dedicated iPhone and Android apps.

The app can also be linked to personal fitness devices such as the FitBit - allowing you to easily share health data with your doctor.

You can sign up by visiting your practice with photographic ID.
