Pharmacy First: Minor Ailments Scheme
Pharmacy First is a scheme available for children and people who do not have to pay for their prescriptions and are suffering from a common ailment. Your local pharmacist will be able to offer you expert advice and medicines for a wide range of common ailments without the need to visit your GP. See the tab on the right hand side of the page for more information.
Choose and Book
Choose and Book is an electronic referral service which gives people a choice of place, date and time for their first outpatient appointment in a hospital or clinic. When you and your GP agree you need to see a specialist you will be able to choose from a list of hospitals and clinics.
You will be given an appointment reference number, a password and the link to the secure Choose and Book website. You will also be able to book your appointment by telephone.
This is available for patients aged 70, 71, 72, 78 or 79, please see the vaccinations tab for further information.
Carer's Health Check

Medical Record Summary
Patients now have access to a summary of their medical record relating to medications, allergies and adverse reactions and vaccinations. Patients will need to have registered for on-line services in order to access their record.
Named GP for all Patients
All patients at the Westgate Practice have a ‘Named GP’ who oversees their care. We also call your ‘Named GP’ your ‘Usual GP’. You can however, continue to book appointments with any GP of your choice. If you are not sure who your ‘Named GP’ is, ask the receptionist at your next visit.
