myGP app

We are aware that some patients are having issues with the myGP app.  This can be either a very slow connection or the inability to order repeat medication.  myGP are aware of this and are working to resolve the issue. You can, however, use Patient Access either via the app or on your PC.  Click here for details on how to register for Patient Access.  We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

For your safety, due to COVID-19, we have changed the way you get your flu vaccine this year.

Please note: unless you are in an at-risk category, people in the 50-64 year old age group will not be vaccinated until November at the earliest, providing there is sufficient vaccine. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. 

Please be aware that it is not a GP’s responsibility to issue school letters of absence for your children, regarding COVID-19 or other illness. Government guidance is that school attendance is mandatory unless your child is self-isolating, has symptoms of COVID-19 or is close to someone who has COVID-19.

The message from Public Health to parents in Lancashire is that you should continue to use the national portal or 119 to arrange a test for your child, and you should not contact their GP. Anyone who tries to book a test and is unable to do so, or who is offered a location or time which is not convenient, is being asked to please wait a few hours and then try again.
