CASTLEFIELDS SURGERY would like to invite you to join DoctorLink.
We have been looking at how we can improve access to Practice services; DoctorLink is our new online service where you can access advice and appointments on line.
Registration is simple and you can register here:
For all urgent appointments, we ask that you undertake a symptom assessment through DoctorLink.
The symptom checker 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, you simply click on the request appointment link.
You can even download the App on the Iphone App Store or on Android Googleplay

The new, simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet.
What the NHS App does
Use the NHS App to:
check your symptoms
find out what to do when you need help urgently
book and manage appointments at your GP surgery
order repeat prescriptions
securely view your GP medical record
register to be an organ donor
choose how the NHS uses your data
You can DOWNLOAD THE NHS app on your APP store from Apple or Google Play
Check which features you can use
You can check if your GP surgery is connected when you open the app for the first time. If it isn't, you can register your email address and we will notify you when they go live.
If your surgery isn't connected you can still download the app and use it to check your symptoms and find out what to do when you need help urgently.
When your surgery is connected, you can register on the App and a series of checks will be carried out to confirm your identity. The app will then securely connect to information from your GP surgery. To keep your access secure, a security code will be sent to your smartphone each time you use the app.
Get help with the app
If you have any issues using or downloading the app, check the NHS App help and support page.
