We have introduced a new service that allows patients who are currently registered at the practice to consult with a GP electronically and offers alternatives to calling or coming into the surgery for common, more minor problems. Please note any photographs needed to help diagnose your condition can be uploaded securely.
Using this service you can also access self-help content and alternative options available to you (e.g. pharmacy, symptom checkers).
When using this service, please do not book a face to face appointment regarding the same problem until you have heard back from the Practice, unless your symptoms get worse
GP online services allow you to access a range of services via your computer, mobile or tablet. Once you have signed up, you will be able to:
- book or cancel appointments online
- renew or order repeat prescriptions online
- view parts of your GP record, including information about medication, allergies, vaccinations, previous illnesses and test results
You can still contact the practice by phone or in person, this is just another option, which other patients have found is more convenient and saves them time. More information including “how to” leaflets and videos of patients and why they are using GP online services are available at www.nhs.uk/gponlineservices
How to sign-up
