Is it ok to use the same email address for family members?

Members of the same family registered for Patient Services might wish to use the same email address.

It is recommended that individual email addresses should be used where possible. When the same email address is used, all confirmation emails of appointments, medication & summary are sent to the same email, which may result in a breach in confidentiality.

If you decide to go ahead and use the same email address for multiple patients, please remember to update all individual patient email details if and when it changes.

Remember – If you change the email address you use in, it is vital that you notify your GP Surgery of the change.
