Online Appointments Booking and Repeat Prescription Ordering
You can now have access to our appointments system online. By using this system you will be able to book an appointment with a GP up to four weeks in advance (no bookings for Same Day appointments).
You can also have access to the new Repeat Prescription ordering facility.
The new system will allow you to choose the medication from your medical record (repeat medication screen only) rather than you having to type into the current form on the website or an email.
The new system will require you to have a user name and password which will then allow you to log on to the practice clinical system and see a list of your medications with dates when they were last issued to you.
To find out more and obtain a user name and password please see one of the reception Team. You will need Photographic identification in order to register for this service.
Utilising this service will enable you to access both appointments and prescriptions 24 hours a day.
