NHS App – Online Services

The NHS has now launched the NHS app which lets you book GP appointments, order repeat prescriptions and access a range of other healthcare services.

It’s super easy to set up without the need to come to the surgery
Simply download the app from Apple Store or Google play on your mobile device and follow the registration instructions.
When you connect the app to the surgery, please select the option ‘ Don’t have letter’.
Once you have registered and uploaded your proof of identity, you will receive verification confirmation within 2 hours and can start using the app.

Recycle your Inhaler

Did you know inhalers can be recycled?

Not disposing of inhalers correctly can be harmful to our environment.

A national recycling and recovery scheme is available for all types of respiratory inhalers.

You can hand in your empty, out of date or unused inhaler to a participating pharmacy for recycling. Visit the Complete the Cycle website for more information, including a pharmacy finder to locate participating pharmacies.
