Managing your health online

Connect to your GP services online and save time. Quick, easy and secure.

At Hall Green Health, we are trying to make it as easy as possible for you to access information including your health information. We also want to make it simple for you to interact with the practice digitally. To do this you can use the following solutions:

We have a four ways to do this:

The NHS App and Patient Access are two routes that offer very similar access.

Patient Access is owned and provided by our clinical system supplier (EMIS) while the NHS App is owned and maintained by the NHS as a whole.

The NHS App is newer and so a lot of patients that have had access would have Patient Access. You are able to have both, either or none. As part of patient choice, we support both platforms.

Protecting your GP online record

Below is a useful leaflet to help you to be aware of how you can protect your GP online records if you chose to have access:

As a practice, we not not recommend of endorse sharing of your account credentials with family, friends or carers. There is a formal proxy access method that can be used for people that support others (e.g. a child caring for their parent). This proxy access route is preferred as it provides a proper audit trail and more abilty to tailor the access. You can have multiple people with proxy access to one patient (e.g. both parents to have access to their baby’s records).


The NHS App gives you a simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services. Download the NHS App on your smartphone or tablet via the Google play or App store. You can also access the same services in a web browser by logging in through the NHS website.

Non-urgent advice: Having Problems?

Online Consultation – Blinx

Hall Green Health use an online system for requesting appointments, called Blinx.

Blinx seamlessly and confidentially integrates with your medical record bringing improvements to how you access care and appointments and how our staff assess your condition.

Blinx allows our Clinical Team to continue to improve access times by helping us to direct you to the most appropriate care for your medical needs. This ensures we make use of our limited resources in the most safe and efficient way. All appointments will continue to be offered according to clinical urgency and need.

Your request will be handled in exactly the same manner, whether you complete the Blinx request online yourself or contact us via telephone – where our receptionists will ask the same questions to ensure equity of access for all patients.

We would encourage all patients, who can do so, to use Blinx as this will prevent you needing to queue on the telephone and keep lines free for those who do not have internet access. Completing an Blinx request yourself also provides you with more discretion should you prefer not to discuss your medical problem with one of our receptionists.

Why Blinx PACO GP?

Based on valuable feedback from patients like you, we chose Blinx because it enhances security and user-friendliness. You won’t need to remember a username or password. Instead, you’ll use your NHS number and date of birth to log in. Verification will be done via a code sent to your contact details, simplifying your access to our services.

Your health and convenience are our utmost priorities, and we believe these changes will significantly enhance your experience with Hall Green Health. Thank you for your continued trust in us.

Below is a short demo of Blinx. We are currently working with Blinx to produce more videos tailored to scenario you may encounter.
