  • You cannot use our online service to book appointments but you can use it to order repeat prescriptions.
  • Now might be the right time to consider downloading and using the NHS App, available from all app stores. This will give you the opportunity to order repeat prescriptions as well as accessing self-care advice which may mean you don’t need to see one of our healthcare professionals.
