Electronic Prescription Service

 

The practice is trying to reduce its environmental footprint by going paperless where possible. Please can you ask you local pharmacy or at the front desk about moving to electronic prescriptions. This also means considerable less work for our GPs, as they no longer have to print and hand sign your prescriptions. Thank you. 

 

NHS App

 

St Andrews encourages you to download and use the new NHS app on your smart phone or tablet. You can activate this yourself without having to contact the surgery. It enables you to view test results, book appointments and order repeat prescriptions. If you already use patient access you can still use this. You can use the NHS app as well. for more information go to www.nhs.uk/nhsapp
