NEW - PPG Helpdesk for Medical Centre IT Systems

We are very conscious of the NHS requiring patients increasingly to use Online Systems and appreciate that this will make communication with the NHS more challenging for many patients

We are, therefore, launching a Helpdesk for Haddenham Medical Centre patients who are using any of the following systems:

Accurx – Patient online form contact system for requesting help with a medical issue e.g. requesting appointment
NHS APP – Normally used by patients to order repeat prescriptions and for seeing test results
Patient Access  - Normally used by patients to order repeat prescriptions and for seeing test results

Please note that Accurx is the new system that can be reached from the Medical Centre website www.haddenham.org under the heading Appointment Booking Link.

We have set up an online request form for you to tell us about any problems or questions that you may have about the 3 systems.

Just click on this link  https://www.dinton.info/ppgithelprequest.php complete the details and one of our “computer savvy” members will respond to you.

You can also contact our Helpdesk coordinator Brian Rogers at brian.hmcppg@gmail.com

User Guide for New Contact/Appointment System at HMC

The PPG's Brian Rogers has created an extremely useful guide for using the new system for contacting the Medical Centre which was introduced recently.

Please Note:

  • If you need urgent attention you should still telephone the Medical Centre
  • You can no longer make appointments via Patient Access or NHS App
