NHS Econsult & Prescriptions

Using our online GP, you can manage your repeat prescriptions as well as book an online GP appointment.
We use quick online tools that link to your local doctor’s surgery, for easy and effective health care services.

Book an online doctor consultation or see a practice nurse at your local doctor surgery

If you need to come in and see a practice nurse, they can advise you on many aspects of general healthcare and provide the following checks:

  • Blood Pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Child immunisations
  • Asthma
  • New patient checks
  • Coronary heart disease
  • Wellman/woman health checks
  • Child immunisations
  • Contraception
  • Cervical smears

We also offer advice for pre and postmenopausal women and foreign travel. There are a few issues we no longer cover. We are no longer able to perform ear syringing and refer cases of wound dressing and post-op stitch removal to the nursing team at the Sudbury hub. Ask at reception for help with recommendations and referrals for these issues.

The easiest way to get your repeat prescription is to use the NHS app.

Reviews Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner, practice nurse or pharmacist at least once a year to review these regular medications and a notification should appear on your repeat slip.

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

Contact our online GP in times of bereavement

  1. Telephone the doctor or LAS who will visit to confirm that death has taken place
  2. Contact a funeral director
  3. Arrange to collect the doctor's Medical Certificate of the Cause of Death (usually from the GP Surgery)
  4. Take this to the local Registrars Office, (together with the deceased's Medical Card and Birth Certificate, if available). Alternatively you can register by declaration at any convenient Registrars Office but certificates will not be available as these will have to be posted to you a few days later
  5. The Registrar will normally issue a Green coloured certificate for you to give to your funeral director who will look after the necessary arrangements for the funeral. The Registrar will also issue a white notification certificate for the DSS. They will also enquire as to the number of Certified Copies you require for dealing with the deceased's finances (a fee is payable for each copy)
  1. Contact a funeral director to inform them that thier services are required
  2. Collect the Death Certificate from the hospital then follow steps 4 - 5 as above

Your funeral director will usually liaise directly with the surgery regarding the additional certification required
