We have been looking at how we can improve access to Practice services; DoctorLink is our new online service where you can:
· Access advice
· Book appointments online
· Request Repeat Prescriptions *** Please only make reference to request repeat prescriptions, where you have this functionality switched on at practice level
· Request Fit/Sick Notes *** Please only make reference to fit/sick notes, where you have this functionality switched on at practice level
For all urgent appointment, we ask that you undertake a symptom assessment through DoctorLink.
The symptom assessment will ask you a number of questions to help to identify your problem.
The outcome of your assessment will direct you to the right treatment, whether emergency care, your GP, nurse or self-care.
If your outcome indicates that an appointment is required at your GP Practice, you simply click on the “book an appointment” button and book your appointment directly.
If no appointments are available, you will see a “request an appointment” button, please click this.
Once the request has been submitted, you will then be contacted by the Practice Team, 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.
