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 sameday telephone appointment with a GP. 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. You will be able to see a list of your medications with dates when they were last issued to you. Utilising this service will enable you to access both appointments and prescriptions 24 hours a day.
The service also allows you to view your Summary Medical Record which contains details of your medication, allergies and sensitivities. If you already have access to online booking and ordering prescriptions you will need to reapply in order to see your Summary Medical Record.
The new system requires you to have a user name and password in order to log on. To find out more and obtain a user name and password please speak to a member of the Reception Team. The service is not available for children under the age of 16.
