Do It Online

We would love it if more of our patients booked appointments and ordered their repeat prescriptions online! It is quick and easy for you and helps reduce our admin time and overheads. We use two services: NHS App + Patient Access.

Some of the features of online access include:-

  • Booking new appointments without having to phone.
  • Cancelling appointments you can't attend any more.
  • Viewing all appointments you have coming up.
  • Ordering repeat prescriptions so they are ready to pick up
  • Viewing aspects of your medical record online (summary, current medications, immunisations, allergies)
  • Updating your contact details

You can usually book 100% of our routine GP and nurse appointments online, but currently this feature is turned off. Due to their nature and complexity, we are unable to offer blood test, emergency GP,  Healthcare Assistant, travel & child immunisation or specialist disease clinic appointments to be booked online. However, we are constantly adding to our online services and hope to offer these soon. To find out who to book your appointment with, go to our Appointments tab.


NHS App

We highly recommend using the official NHS app. It provides the quickest registration process and is a simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The app can be downloaded on Android and iOS smartphones and can also be accessed on a computer. To register or log in on your computer please follow this link: https://www.nhsapp.service.nhs.uk/login

The NHS App enables people to:

Patients can register and prove who they are so they can:

  • order their repeat prescriptions and view, set or change their nominated pharmacy, where they want their prescriptions to be sent
  • view their GP health record securely
  • manage their first hospital or clinic appointment with a specialist, when they are referred by their GP, through the NHS e-Referral Service (e-RS)

For more information on the NHS App please visit: https://www.nhs.uk/nhs-app/


Patient Access

Patient Access is a website that connects to our computer system giving you access to the mostly same services as the NHS App. You can find a link on the website, or download a free Android or iOS app for your mobile. It’s easy to use, and the site is encrypted so it is secure.

You can set up a basic account online to book an appointment straight away, but to get the whole service we’ll need to check your ID and send you a registration letter with a PIN code to set up the full account. This might seem like a bit of effort, but keeping your data secure online is very important to us.
