Abbey Medical Practice patient online services – June 2018
A recent change to the patient online services system asks patients to nominate a pharmacy - This is not necessary for dispensing patients who collect their medication from the surgery. Dispensing patients should, therefore, click the ‘not now’ option when asked to nominate a pharmacy and your medication will continue to be dispensed in the same way.
You will only be prompted with the ‘nominate a pharmacy’ screen when you first request repeats medication through the new service.
Selecting not now will generate the request as normal.
The ‘not now’ option is shown in the screenshot below.

The GP's offer 5-minute emergency appointments, which operate on a sit and wait basis.
We would like to advise patients that although an approximate appointment time is given when the appointment is booked, the actual length of wait until you are seen depends on the number of patients attending as emergency cases and how busy the duty doctor is.
Please note that these appointments are of 5 minutes duration in order to discuss the most clinically urgent problem only.
