Patient Access Password Security Update
Patient Access are implementing a new security measure to further protect your data. They are introducing an additional authentication step when signing in to Patient Access . You will be asked to set a ‘memorable word’ that you will need to enter three characters from when signing in to Patient Access, as well as your usual password. You will also be able to set a ‘memorable word reminder’ to help prompt you if at any point you forget it

Why adding your mobile phone number is recommended
Adding a mobile number to your Patient Access account will ensure that your account is as secure as possible. This will also mean we can further authenticate you if you ever need to reset your password. You do not have to provide us with your mobile phone number, it is an optional security measure, but it is strongly recommended that you do so to help further protect your data.
The security of personal data is of utmost importance to us. We realise how sensitive any information relating to your health is, and we are dedicated to ensuring its safety and privacy.
To reset your PIN or password using Patient Access, you must have your mobile number and email address recorded. Please see the following page on adding and verifiying a mobile number
