Online access update

Don't forget to request your medication and book your appointments online. We now offer web bookable appointments for blood tests (phlebotomy), INR (warfarin monitoring) and smears (well woman clinics). These should be booked only when a doctor or nurse has requested you have one of these tests or if your smear is due. We will soon be offering web bookable appointments for the pre-school booster vaccination for children.

You are now also able to message your GP via this service. This can be used for simple queries, such as a medication query, checking if you need a blood test/review, results query.
