Online Services

The NHS App is available on iOS and Android. To use it you must be aged 13 and over and registered with a GP surgery in England. Find out more about who can use the NHS App.

Once installed the app will guide you through the process of registration so you will not need to contact the practice directly. For more information visit Getting started with the NHS App.

This system does not allow you or anyone to see or alter your medical record. However, should you pass on your login details to anybody else, they will have access to some very personal information about you. You are responsible for any information that you download, print or share with others, and if you think that somebody else might have gained access to your login details, please inform the practice immediately and we will disable this function. Please keep your login details safe – our staff will never ask you for it. 


All doctors are accessible through this service but you can only book a 15-minute slot and so this system cannot be used to book appointments for the following.

  • Lots/complicated problems
  • Coil fitting or check
  • Childcare checks
  • Ante-natal or post-natal
  • Operations
  • Private medicals
  • Forms requiring completion


Appointments can be cancelled, even if they have not been made on-line.

Address Changes

You can inform us of address or telephone information. Please note mobile phones are increasingly used to contact patients and although we have a policy of not identifying the target by name messages may be left. Please ensure that your mobile number is updated as soon as it changes.

Repeat Prescription Requests

These are only possible when:

  • medication already exists on our system (ie issued at least once from UNHS)
  • a review is not due
  • the medication has not been requested too recently

Repeats by this system allow you to collect the paper prescription from our desk 48 (working) hours after the internet request. When distant from the practice (holidays) prescriptions can only be sent if we have a self-addressed STAMPED envelope.

There is currently an outbreak of measles in the UK. 

If you have not received 2 doses of MMR vaccine (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) in your lifetime, then you could be at risk of catching this serious disease.

Please make an appointment to see the practice nurse for a vaccination, so we can ensure that you are protected.
