We invite our patients to join DoctorLink.
This is an online service where you can access advice online and obtain fit notes. Registration is simple and you can register online.
Prior to calling the surgery we ask that you go through DoctorLink. It will ask you a number of questions to help identify your issue. The outcome of your assessment will direct you to the right treatment, whether emergency care, your GP, nurse or self care or issue you with the relevant form. If your outcome indicates that an appointment is required, you simply click on the request appointment link.
You will then be contacted by the practice to arrange an appointment within the identified timeframe (as outlined in the outcome of your symptom checker).
The information you provide will be shared with our clinical team (where appropriate) and will assist in providing robust information of your problem to the required clinical team member prior to your appointment.
