GP appointments

Our Online Consulting platform allows you:

  1. To seek self-help information from the NHS, through our surgery website. Services include self-help information, advice or help from local services which may be appropriate for your condition, such as self-referral services or help from your local pharmacy.
  2. To seek medical advice online from Central Surgery for your condition.
  3. To seek general or administrative advice (e.g. for insurance forms, fit-notes, referrals, secure messaging to admin and reception staff, etc).
  4. Request repeat medication. We always recommend patients to use the NHS APP or Patient Online Services to request repeat medications but when this is not possible (e.g. requesting medications on behalf of children), you can use our Online Consulting form.

This short online form is the quickest and simplest way for the majority of our patients to access or clinical team for assistance. Our practice phone lines remain open for anyone with accessibility needs who might find difficulty completing this form 01279 603 180 8am – 6:30pm, Monday – Friday.
