Easily arrange appointments with your GP using the NHS App

There is no need to waste time hanging on the telephone when you need a GP appointment. During the COVID-19 pandemic GP Practices have had to make changes to help you as much as possible, but without asking you to visit a GP Practice. This is to avoid you catching an infection travelling to and from the GP Practice, or in the GP Practice itself.

Your GP Practice may be offering:

  • No bookable appointments in the NHS App

  • Only some appointments for example : Blood Test, Cervical Smear

  • Bookable GP telephone appointments

This is because they  want patients with new problems to use GP Online Consultation to send information to the GP Practice first, and then the GP Practice decides hpw best to help you. Each GP Practice is different, nearly all offer a GP Online Consultation, click here to learn about GP Online Consultations.
