Doctor Link A Free online Symptom Checker (endorsed by the NHS and the Practice)

Malmesbury Medical Practice 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 Symptom Checker where you can access advice and appointments on line.

Registration is simple and you can register here:

You can also Download  the app for free by going to your preferred App store.

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, pharmacist, practice nurse or self-care.

If your outcome indicates that an appointment is required at Malmesbury Medical Centre, 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 online  will be available to our clinical team and so you will not have to repeat yourself again. Having this symptom information to hand prior to any contact will also assist them in providing help for your problem fully and quickly.

We hope that you find this additional service a useful one.
