Helping patients set up GP services

I want to set up my patients with online access to their GP services. How can I do this using Evergreen Life?

Anyone can create an Evergreen Life account. However, to link the account to your practice, the patient would need to first be fully registered with you. You can then create an online account for them using your clinical system and then generate the relevant codes to allow them to link. Let's look at how to set up online patient-facing services on the Evergreen Life app and website.

There are a couple of different ways for your patients to link their Evergreen Life account to your practice.

Online Registration

The first way would be that you (as the GP surgery) produce an Online Registration Document which will contain a number of codes that you can provide to the patient, which will allow them to link. The codes you generate will be entered by the patient after creating an Evergreen Life account.  

Using the website:

  1. Find practice (we advise that they search for your practice using the ODS code/Practice ID/Organisation code, which can be provided on their Online Registration Document).
  1. Confirm that they “have a letter or email from their practice” (this is the Online Registration Document).
  1. Enter date of birth, Account ID and Linkage Key (EMIS/Vision)/Passphrase(TPP).
  1. Clink ‘Link now’.

Using the app:

  1. Tap GP.  
  1. Tap ‘Link to your GP’.
  1. Confirm that they “have a letter or email from their practice” (this is the Online Registration Document).
  1. Find practice (we advise that they search for your practice using the ODS code/Practice ID/Organisation code, which can be provided on their Online Registration Document).
  1. Agree to Terms of Use.
  1. Enter date of birth, Account ID and Linkage Key (EMIS/Vision)/Passphrase(TPP).

Using NHS login

An alternative way for a patient to link their Evergreen Life account to your practice is by using the NHS login button. This allows a user to send a short video/photo and a form of photo ID to the NHS who can then confirm their identity and allow them link to link to your practice. Therefore, patients can do this remotely without having to visit the surgery.

**Quick tip** Patients can only use NHS login for to link to your practice if they have never linked previously. If a patient needs to re-link, you will need to provide them with a new Online Registration Document.
