Online Booking – Personal Health Record

Important Information Before Registering for a Personal Health Record (PHR) Account

Before registering for a Personal Health Record (PHR) account, please read all the information below.

Please note: We have a range of appointment types available, which we open in advance. This can be as little as 48 hours in advance, or up to 6 weeks in advance.

DISCLAIMER

If this is your first time using PHR, you will need to register for a new account. You must only register for YOURSELF with YOUR OWN personal email address and YOUR OWN UK mobile phone number. Do not use shared email addresses and make sure no one else has access to your phone. By registering for a PHR, you are giving your consent for us to contact you using the email address and mobile number provided. We recommend password-protecting your phone and email accounts with strong passwords.

By registering, you confirm you are providing us with accurate, up-to-date information and the email address and mobile number you provide is secure and only accessible to yourself. Please take care to ensure the information is correct as it cannot be changed once submitted.

PHR accounts that are in breach of these terms, by using someone else’s email address or phone number, will be deactivated pending identification verification to change the details. There may be occasion when we will ask you to verify your identity.

Personal Health Record (PHR)

Your Personal Health Record (PHR) provides you with the ability to:

  • Register with the OpenClinic service.
  • Manage your own details.
  • Book, cancel and re-arrange your appointments.

The following applies to online appointment booking: 

  • Only 1 appointment can be made online. If you need any additional appointments, please call 0808 178 0955 (if you live in Stoke, Staffordshire and Telford & Wrekin) or 0300 404 2996 (if you live in Shropshire).
  • The PHR will ask a series of questions to establish your care needs, which allows us to offer you the appropriate service. If an appointment is offered, this may be via telephone or a face-to-face appointment at your chosen clinic.

Important notes for appointments booked online via PHR:

  • Please arrive 10 minutes BEFORE your appointment time. If you have not arrived by your designated appointment time, your appointment may have to be re-booked.
  • This is especially important for appointments to insert or remove a contraception method involving a minor procedure (e.g., the implant, hormonal coil or copper coil). This allows time for necessary investigations, including a urine sample and/or blood pressure check. Should you not arrive in time to do this, we may not be able to complete your procedure during your scheduled appointment.
  • If you want to change your contraception method (for example, to remove an IUD/IUS and replace with an implant, or, to remove an implant and replace with an IUD/IUS), please phone us on 0808 178 0955 (if you live in Stoke, Staffordshire and Telford & Wrekin) or 0300 404 2996 (if you live in Shropshire) before making an appointment online to discuss your needs. It might be necessary to book a double appointment, which can only be done over the phone. DO NOT TRY TO BOOK THIS ON PHR.
  • Please be aware that due to the nature of our services, it is not always appropriate for children to be present during your consultation. If you bring children with you, we may not be able to complete your consultation and a further visit may be necessary.

Once you have submitted your details, a verification email will be sent to confirm you have access to this email account. Once you have verified the email by clicking on the link sent to your email address, you will then be sent a verification code via text message to your mobile phone number.

Emergency Hormonal Contraception (Morning After Pill)

If you have had unprotected sex and don’t want to get pregnant, you can take the Emergency Hormonal Contraceptive (EHC) pill, also known as the morning after pill.
