DoctorLink

DoctorLink is for those times when you want to access personalised medical advice about your symptoms but don't necessarily feel the need to visit a healthcare professional, or when it's outside our normal GP practice hours.

The DoctorLink application helps improve patient access, while relieving pressure on our GPs here at The Junction Health Centre, by offering an online medical advice service 24-hours a day, seven days a week. By embracing this new technology, patients are empowered to receive the medical advice they want and, when necessary, are directed to the appropriate treatment providers, without the need of booking an appointment with a nurse or doctor and taking time out of their day to visit the health centre. It's all done online.

By answering questions through the symptom checker about the symptoms you are experiencing, the DoctorLink assessment tool will then deliver medical advice that is tailored to you.  

This application is free to use for our registered patients and does not stop you from booking a routine appointment with our surgery. To book an appointment call 0333 200 1718.
