Do I have to use the App or do things online?
No, there is always the option to visit us and we appreciate that some patients will prefer that route.
But the NHS App and other digital technologies offer choice and flexibility – and often, you will be able to do what you need quicker, without needing to wait for us to open or be able to get through on the phone.
When everyday tasks like reordering a prescription or choosing which pharmacy to have it sent to can be automated through the NHS App, it frees up members of our team to be able to spend more time with patients in the practice or on the phone to those who can’t use digital tools.
