Abbotswood Medical Centre is located in Katherine Place (off College Road) next to Tesco Express. We are able to offer ground floor, wheelchair accessible consulting and treatment facilities.
Please inform the receptionist when you make an appointment in case any arrangements need to be made.
GP online services allow you to access a range of services via your computer, mobile or tablet. Once you have signed up, you will be able to:
- book or cancel appointments online
- renew or order repeat prescriptions online
- view parts of your GP record, including information about medication, allergies, vaccinations, previous illnesses and test results
You can still contact the practice by phone or in person, this is just another option, which other patients have found more convenient and saves them time. More information including “how to” leaflets and videos of patients and why they are using GP online services are available at www.nhs.uk/gponlineservices
How to Register
For more information, please contact reception or next time you visit the surgery, bring with you a piece of photo ID (passport, driving licence) and something with your address on like a bank statement but not a gas or electric bill. If you don’t have these, please talk to us and we will help you sign-up.
Giving Others Access to Your Online Services
A new guide is available for patients who need to give another person, such as their carer, access to their GP online services. It explains the benefits and shows you how to do this. This guide can be accessed by clicking on this link: Giving Another Person Access to Your GP Online Access
