Non-urgent advice: Ways that you can help

There are some things that you can do to help reduce the pressure on the surgery, which will in turn improve the service you can receive when you do need us.

1. If you are ordering repeat prescriptions, please try to order online via the NHS App or Systmonline. You can register to use the NHS App from your own home and do not need to attend the surgery. If you download the App onto your phone or tablet it will then take you through a process to authenticate your identity. Once this is complete you will be able to send through a request for a repeat prescription via the app at any time of day. The App is easy to use and much safer and easier for the practice to process as the requests are directly linked to your record. It also reduces the number of telephone calls to the practice, helping those that need to get through for urgent matters.                                                                                                         

2. There are many short-term illnesses that either do not require treatment or can be treated with a medication that is available to buy over the counter. Please visit your pharmacist for help and advice. You do not need to make an appointment to speak to the pharmacist, you can just drop in anytime. For a list of all the things that your local pharmacist can help with please see the leaflet below.
