I want to install on my laptop alongside EMIS/S1

Sure! You can just follow the regular steps to install: go to, click "GP practice" - after that, you'll see the steps you need to follow to complete the download and install. ๐Ÿ‘‡ย 

If you've used Chain before and you're an EMIS practice, you can skip to step 4.

Again, should be fine! Try installing accuRx Chain alongside wherever you've got EMIS installed. As far as we're aware we work with most versions of remote software. Click the button above to install Chain ๐Ÿ‘†

If you are unable to access EMIS/SystmOne from home and are needing to work remotely, you can login to with your Chain account and use this instead ๐Ÿ™‚
