Registration letters from NHS England – please respond if you get one.
The NHS is carrying out work in Bath, Gloucestershire, Swindon and Wiltshire to make sure the patient details on GP lists are accurate. Letters are being sent to some patients, but not all.
If you do receive a letter, please either confirm your details or submit any changes.
Electronic Prescription Service
This service gives you the option to 'nominate' the place you choose to get your medication from so that they can receive your prescriptions electronically. This could save you a trip to the surgery just to collect a prescription form - particularly if you have regular prescriptions.
Online booking appointments and requesting repeat prescriptions
It is now possible to book and cancel appointments and request repeat prescriptions online. Please collect a form from Reception to register. You will be asked for proof of identity.
