Hi can anyone tell me how long you have to wait after applying for GP online Services before you get a letter back. I handed my form in last Monday was told a few days but have heard nothing yet. Your supposed to get a letter with a pass code  Just wondered if anyone else had done this and how long they waited. Thanks

    Hello, not using this system I would have thought that any pass words would be online via your email.

    Hi,

    It depends on the surgery on what their policy is. With mine and my daughters we had to take photo ID to the surgery and then they printed a special password that allowed us to sign up. Once i entered mine own details followed by the password i was given i then had access. Took 5 minutes at the DR's and 5 minutes at home.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
