There are many benefits for you creating a PATCHS account, including:
- Not having to keep entering your details each time you use PATCHS
- Your medical information being safer because it's password protected
- Being able to track the progress of your requests
- Easily seeing if your GP practice is trying to contact you
- Viewing past conversations you've had with your GP practice
- Being able to submit requests on behalf of people you care for
Having an account also makes it easier for your GP practice because they don't have to check your details each time you submit a new request.
