The Portland Practice
Welcome to the Portland Practice website. We are a large general practice with a catchment area covering most of Cheltenham.
We work between two sites, the main being the Portland practice based in the centre of Cheltenham and a branch surgery located in Hatherley.
Our medical team includes eight doctors, a nurse practitioner, community nurses, health visitors, community midwives and a full practice nursing and healthcare assistant team.
In order to enhance our service to you we are changing our online services. We are introducing a new service called Vision Online Services. This will let you interact with our practice using the internet at your convenience to order repeat medication, book or cancel appointments even when we are closed. Please register for the new service by downloading this form, completing it and bringing it to the practice together with your photo ID (driving licence, passport or national ID card). You will then be given information that will enable you to create your username and password.
If you wish to use the old system you may still do so for a limited time.
To continue to order repeat medication using the old system use the link for the your surgery below.
The buttons below are for the new system only. You need to be registered to use the Repeat Prescriptions.
Please select your current surgery. This will take you to the correct form.
