How you order a repeat prescription is changing. From the 1 September 2019 you will need to order your repeat prescription directly from the surgery. You can do this in the following ways: Order online via your GP surgery website, download the NHS App on your mobile phone or tablet device, tick the items you need on the white, tear-off section of your prescription and give to your surgery or post the repeat prescription to your GP practice. For further information please talk to surgery staff or your local pharmacy. Alternatively go to www.valeofyorkccg.nhs.uk
If you're a patient at our practice you can now use the new NHS App, a simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet. You can use the NHS App to check your symptoms and get instant advice, book appointments, order repeat prescriptions, view your GP medical record and more. If you already use SystmOnline you can continue to use it. You can use the NHS App as well. For more information go to www.nhs.uk/nhsapp .
