The Pines 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:
REGISTER FOR DOCTORLINK 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.
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.
You can even download the App:
Any Child aged 11-19yrs old can contact the School Nurse in confidence
(whether you are at school or not)
For further information on Electronic Repeat Dispensing please
Please be aware that during the current coronavirus situation you will be screened by reception before any appointment can be made - online services are for telephone appointments ONLY - please do not come to the surgery unless you have been advised to - all our usual clinics are subject to change - so we recommend if you are unsure to ring the surgery for advice - we appreciate your patience and understanding at this time.

IMPORTANT - If you are concerned about Coronavirus please refer to www.gov.uk/coronavirus for the latest information. If you have symptoms of a cough, fever or shortness of breath please refer to www.111.nhs.uk or call 111 - DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY.
The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are extremely well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The current risk to the general public is moderate.
You can help too.
Germs can live on some surfaces for hours. To protect yourself and others:
- Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze.
- Bin the tissue, and to kill the germs, wash your hands with soap and water, or use a sanitiser gel.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.
- If you have arrived back from an affected area within the last 14 days and develop symptoms of cough or fever or shortness of breath, you should immediately:
- Stay indoors and avoid contact with other people as you would with the flu
- Call NHS 111 to inform them of your recent travel to the country
This is the best way to slow the spread of almost any germs, including Coronavirus.
More information, including a list of the affected areas is available by logging onto gov.uk/coronavirus
