HEALTH bosses in Worcestershire are reminding patients to stock-up for Christmas.

Many GP practices and pharmacies will have limited opening hours between Christmas and New Year, so patients, especially those with long-term conditions are encouraged to order and collect their repeat prescriptions in plenty of time.

Repeat prescriptions can be ordered online by using GP Online Services, a simple service that can also be used to make and cancel appointments and view medical records.

If you are not already registered, you can find out more or ask for a registration form from your GP Surgery. I

f you take two forms of photo ID in to the surgery they can sign you up there and then.

To book an appointment outside normal hours contact a GP Surgery to discuss extended access appointments in Worcestershire.
