ONLINE SERVICES FOR PATIENTS
Patient Access is an on-line service that allows patients to;
- book and cancel GP and blood test appointments
- order repeat prescriptions
- view selected medical records
- send secure messages to the practice
REGISTERING FOR PATIENT ACCESS
To register for Patient Access, please visit the surgery, bringing identification documents with you. Ideally this should be;
- two forms of photo-ID, OR...
- one form of photo-ID + a bank statement
Photo-ID can include a photographic driving licence, passport, bus-pass or student ID card.
Any bank statement presented will only be used to cross-check address details and will never be copied.
ID verification requirements are stringent because Patient Access allows the user to see some parts of your medical record.
Once your ID has been checked a registration form will be printed for you containing your User ID and password - this information can then be used to set up your Patient Access account.
PLEASE NOTE THAT ONLINE SERVICES ARE NOT AVAILABLE FOR PATIENTS UNDER THE AGE OF 16
PATIENTS WITHOUT PHOTO-ID
If you cannot present ID, but would like to use Patient Access, please tell us and we will ask your GP to vouch for your identity.
PATIENTS WHO CANNOT VISIT THE SURGERY

Welcome to Brunel Medical Practice
Brunel Medical Practice was formed in 2006 by the merger of the Kirkham Medical Practice and The Medical Practice, St Marychurch, becoming the largest practice in the Torbay area.
We are a friendly practice with 8 GP partners, 4 salaried GP's and 12 nursing staff, from practice nurses to phlebotomists. Our experienced and helpful administrative staff are spread across our three sites in Babbacombe, St Marychurch and Shiphay.
As a training practice, training 2nd and 5th year medical students as well as providing registrar training on a six month rotation, we are instrumental in the development of future Doctors and Consultants which is something we are very proud of.
We are also a research practice and our patients have the opportunity to become involved in clinical trials.
We also specialise in a number of areas such as patients with learning disabilities and dermatology.
We hope you enjoy our website and find it useful.
