Online Services at Nelson Family Medicine

Nelson Family Medicine is pleased to offer our enrolled patients online access through a patient portal. Our portal is provided by ConnectMed.

You can use the portal to book a standard (15 minute) doctor's appointment online and to order repeat prescriptions. All you need for this is a current ConnectMed account. This is easy to set up when you make a booking or request a prescription for the first time.

The portal also allows you to  view securely online your: test results, recalls, immunisation record, and regular medication list. Seeing the dosage and name of each medication makes it even easier to request repeat prescriptions online. Because all this information is confidential this level of access must be enabled by a staff member at Nelson Family Medicine. Ask your doctor or nurse to do this for you.

Our plan is to add other online services in stages. Each service will be successfully implemented before we add a further service.  We understand some patients may be frustrated by our cautious approach. However this technology allows access to the most sensitive personal information, so we have to be certain our system and processes are faultless. We don't plan to give patients online access to their whole medical record at this stage. We are investigating email and video consultations that this technology makes possible, but this also is some time away.

Sharon Brinsdon is the manager with responsibility for the patient portal. Please address any comments questions or concerns to her. Email address is
