The Patient Access mobile app, the UK’s first GP appointment booking app, is the winner of the Innovation Award in the Medilink Yorkshire & Humber Healthcare Business Awards 2013. The free app, provided by the UK’s leading independent health information website, enables patients to securely book their GP appointments, order repeat prescriptions and view their medical record online via their mobile device. The Medilink Awards, held in partnership with the Yorkshire and Humber Academic Health Science Network (AHSN), celebrate the achievements of Healthcare Technology and related Life Sciences companies from across Yorkshire and Humber.

It could mean making those diabetes GP appointments much easier.

Ben Foster, Operations Director at, comments, “We are delighted to win this award, which recognises the impact and benefits of this app, for both patients and GP practices. It gives patients even more flexibility and convenience in managing their healthcare. Practices love it because it frees up staff time to focus on other vital and increasing work.”
