The Hill Surgery – 01424 755355

Do it online


You can download the NHS App for free and register for online prescription requests. You send your ID directly to NHS England who will verify and set your account up quickly and easily.

The NHS App will be available to use as a vaccine passport.

A paper version will also be available by calling 119.

You do not need to telephone your GP Practice to ask about the vaccine passport as they are unable to provide vaccine passports and it’s essential we leave phone lines free for people who need medical assistance. The NHS App is separate to the NHS COVID-19 App, which is used for contact tracing.

NHS App information sheet

Help and support

Please do not contact your GP practice in the first instance for support with the NHS App.

You can find help here, including contact details for NHS App team, how to manage your account, how to nominate a pharmacy and request a repeat prescription, and technical issues with the App.

Engage consult

You can now contact the surgery online to tell us all about your medical problem or ask an admin question.

Please note that we do not accept repeat prescription requests via Engage Consult. Please be advised that you need to register for the online service with the NHS App.

Completing an Engage Consult questionnaire allows us to quickly and safely decide on the best way to help you, your child or an adult in your care. Please submit a separate query for each patient.

Due to unprecedented demand, we have had to change our response times. We aim to respond to messages received before 10.00am within 2 WORKING DAYS.

If you create an account for Engage Consult, you can also receive replies online, rather than by phone.

Please note any digital image submitted as part of an online consultation will be stored within your clinical notes, unless you specifically request that it is not.

Just a reminder that if you send us an online consultation, please do not phone in as well, as this causes duplication of work for the doctors.

Please do not send appointment requests through the Engage Consult online portal – these will be returned to you asking you to telephone the Surgery.

Please ring 01424 755355 to book appointments.
