If you decide that the slabs on your patio are completely stable, the next step is going to be to chip out the old cement mortar using a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or better still a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder. When you are done, you should give the whole area a really good cleanup and carry out the re-grouting using a resin or polymeric grout. Some are applied using the wet slurry approach while others use a dry brush-in system. Most specialist Hednesford patio layers will do patio repointing, so try contacting one near you to get a quote.
