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.


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 – Anima

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

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

Anima allows our Clinical Triage 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 Anima 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 Anima 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 Anima request yourself also provides you with more discretion should you prefer not to discuss your medical problem with one of our receptionists.
