Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.



Orders via the 'My GP App' - Please be aware that if you order your prescription via the My GP App and usually have your prescription delivered by a local Pharmacy, you DO NOT need to click the delivery option when you order. If you click the box requesting your prescription to be delivered, this will change your preferred Pharmacy from your usual one to a company called ECHO which is based in London.
