Online Services

GP online services allow you to access a range of services via your computer, mobile or tablet. Once you have signed up, you will be able to:

  • book or cancel appointments online
  • renew or order repeat prescriptions online
  • view parts of your GP record, including information about medication, allergies, vaccinations, previous illnesses and test results

You can still contact the practice by phone or in person, this is just another option, which other patients have found is more convenient and saves them time. More information including “how to” leaflets and videos of patients and why they are using GP online services are available at www.nhs.uk/gponlineservices

How to sign-up

For more information, please contact reception or next time you visit the surgery, bring with you a piece of photo ID (passport, driving licence) and something with your address on like a bank statement but not a gas or electric bill. If you don’t have these, please talk to us and we will help you sign-up

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

The Prime Minister announced on 12th December that COVID boosters are to be offered to everyone over 18 (who had their second dose of the vaccine at least three months ago).

 You will be able to book online from Wednesday (December 15) by visiting www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/ or by ringing 119 if you do not have access to the Internet.

 We are awaiting further details tomorrow and would ask the public to be patient and to please NOT ring their GP practice.

 Additional clinics will be made available in North East Lincolnshire, and the local CCG will also update any local walk-in sites on the CCG walk in clinic page which you can find at www.northeastlincolnshireccg.nhs.uk/covid-19/vaccineclinics/
