requesting medication using online services

TO ORDER your medication ONLINE we recommend using the nhs app or PATIENT ACCESS. the nhs app will display your covid-19 vaccination status

nhs app

The NHS App is now live with your COVID-19 certificate to show you’ve been vaccinated, many countries will require proof of this to allow you to enter. We anticipate this to be widely needed as more countries get added to the Green Travel list.

The NHS App can be downloaded from here for iPhone or here for android.

instructions on downloading and registering for the nhs app can be found here. 

It only takes a couple of minutes to set up, ideally you should have a form of ID & your NHS number to hand – https://www.nhs.uk/nhs-services/online-services/find-nhs-number/ can help you find your NHS Number.

 you can register on the nhs app without needing codes from the surgery. codes can still be obtained from the surgery if you are not able to complete the registration process.

The NHS App can also be used to order your repeat prescriptions.
