Please can you ensure medication is ordered and collected during these times. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Online booking system – new log-in details
We have recently changed our clinical system to one that is used widely across other local healthcare services. This new system will help improve how our healthcare professionals share important information to benefit your care.

Our new online booking system is now up and running, please contact us to receive new log-ins to enable you to book an appointment or order repeat prescriptions online.

If you are already registered with our online booking service for appointments and repeat prescriptions, you do not need to re-register. However as this is a different system, you will need new log-in details – please request these now by contacting the surgery either in person or by telephone. Log in details can be given to you in person or posted to your address.

Please note the new log-in details won’t be automatically issued, you will need to contact us to request these. Thank you for your co-operation.
