Patient-facing services

Innovative and award-winning services for patients to use online.

We provide multi award-winning websites and apps that give trusted health information, secure access to health records and empower patients to manage their own health.

Trusted information

Patient is the web’s leading independent health platform, with over 18 million visits a month. More than 4,000 clinical articles on a wide range of health topics are brought to life with high-quality videos, infographics and stories from real patients.

All of the articles written by the Patient team are based on reliable reference material, peer reviewed and certified by The Information Standard so you know what we write is accurate and unbiased.

On Patient you’ll find:

  • plain-English articles on health issues and medication
  • advice on nutrition, diet and fitness
  • healthy recipes
  • parenting advice.

Giving more

Because we care about making a difference, Patient gives you much more than just information. Our popular forum gives patients an opportunity to discuss their issues and share experiences with others. An intuitive symptom checker helps people to explore their health problems. And, our exclusive blog and videos from TV’s Dr Sarah Jarvis provide trusted advice from a familiar face.

We also offer lots of great apps designed to help you proactively monitor and improve your health.

The apps we offer include:

  • Diabetes Manager
  • Depression Calculator
  • Weight Tracker
  • Migraine Diary
  • Sleep Diary.

Patient Access

Patient Access helps save precious time for both patients and GPs by providing access to local NHS GP services online. It gives patients the ability to book appointments, order repeat medication, access their medical records, view test results, and communicate confidentially with GPs, all online. The service is available via website and mobile apps (for both Apple and Android). It is the leading solution in its field, both in terms of number of registered members and volume of transactions.

Personal Health Record

Our integration with Apple’s HealthKit means Patient Access users can build and manage a complete personal health profile which they can share with healthcare professionals.

Information like blood pressure, weight and pedometer readings are pulled together in HealthKit and shared through Patient Access. The data is stored securely in our hosted servers and can be viewed by any EMIS Web clinician with the patient’s consent.
