 If you want to register for this you will need to come to the surgery with two forms of identification.  One must be photographic, i.e. passport, driving licence, bus pass, and one must contain evidence of your address i.e. utility bill.  We will then give you log in details so that you are able to make telephone appointments with your doctor and you will be able to order your repeat prescriptions.

The repeat prescriptions do actually link into your medical records so will be accurate.
