We have been looking at how we can improve access to your GP practice and improve the patient experience.

In partnership with DoctorLink, we will be running a pilot which will give you access to a new service.

DoctorLink is a convenient and reliable online service where you can:

Check symptoms - with a clinically approved symptom checker

Get directed to the right treatment - whether a doctor, emergency care, a nurse or other

Book an appointment at your GP surgery - if your symptoms mean you need to see a clinician

We aim to provide our patients with the most suitable healthcare advice, to help you share your symptoms with your GP/nurse, and to avoid lengthy telephone wait times if you need to request an appointment.

Simply click the link below to register with DoctorLink today and access your GP services.


We are asking all patients to register with DoctorLink if possible. Thank you for helping us to find new ways to provide our services.

(Please note: if preferred, you can still make an appointment via phone or Patient Access while we trial our new online service with DoctorLink).



Please remember all prescription requests need to be ordered direct with the surgery and not through 3rd party pharmacists (including online pharmacies). Thanks
