With Evergreen Life, you can gain access to your GP online services easily and safely. Just follow the three simple steps below.
How to access GP online services
- Ask your GP for a letter - don't forget your ID!
When you go to your GP, you can ask for a letter which gives you access to GP online services. Your letter has all the details you need to register an account on Evergreen Life. To access your GP online services, your GP firstly needs to confirm who you are. They need to see you in person to do that, so you’ll need to quickly pop into your GP surgery to confirm your identity. This is important to ensure that no-one but you can access your services.
- Create your Evergreen Life account
Download the FREE Evergreen Life app from the App Store or Google Play Store. Click 'Create an account' and enter the email address and password that you want to use. Your email address will also be your username. These will be the details you use from now on to access your Evergreen Life account. If you wish to change your email or password at any point, you can always alter your details in 'Settings.'
- Link your account to your GP
After creating your account, you'll be able to enter your unique linkage codes. To do this, tap the 'GP' section, and tap the blue 'Link to your GP'. Follow the steps and as soon as you've entered these codes you'll have full access to all of the GP online services that your practice has enabled for you.
