Online Services at Nelson Family Medicine

Nelson Family Medicine offers our enrolled patients access to parts of their medical record and some online services through a patient portal. You can visit this portal here Manage my Health (MMH). MMH is accessed through their website or via an app on your phone.

Online Services:

  • Make a booking. Standard (15 minute) doctor's appointments can be made online at any time of the day or night. Same day, nurse appointments or specialised appointments such as immigration or other medicals can only be made by phoning the practice in business hours.  If you are enrolled with us but don't have an MMH account you can make a booking by pressing a green button you will find on our home page.
  • Order Repeat Prescriptions: you will be advised when your script has been processed or if your request has been declined for some reason.   

The portal also allows you to view securely online your:

  • Test results. You can see the results plus the Abnormal results will still be followed up by your doctor. 
  • Recalls. Recall texts and letters will still be sent.
  • Immunisation record.
  • Medical Alerts.
  • Regular medication list.
  • Demographic Information. You will be able to keep this up to date making any changes to your address etc.

It costs nothing to set up a MMH account. Ask at the surgery or email if you would like an account.


Sharon Brinsdon is the manager with responsibility for the patient portal.  Please address any comments questions or concerns to her. Email address is Karenne and Julie-Anne are admin staff with responsibility for the portal and they can also help with any problems.
