  • In most cases a GP will be able to provide the care needed using a phone or video consultation.
  • If you need to be seen face-to-face and have no symptoms of coronavirus we will make every effort to ensure it is at a practice as close as possible to where you live, only if your own GP Practice is unable to see patients.
  • For those patients with coronavirus or symptoms of the virus there are potential alternatives that can be discussed with the Clinician on the phone or video call.
  • Order repeat prescriptions via the Rotherham Health App. Remember to only order the medicines you need, do not order early if you don't need it, the item will not disappear from your prescription.
