Improving Access - DoctorLink
Twickenham Park 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.
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:

Patient access to their GP record
Under the new GP Contract introduced in April 2014, GP surgeries are required to provide patients with online access to their medical records to view their medications, allergies and any adverse reactions by the 31st March 2015. We are proposing to fulfil this requirement through an extension of our existing online appointment and repeat prescription service, as soon as the technology is approved.
Friends and Family Test
The NHS friends and family test (FFT) is an important opportunity for you to provide feedback on the care and treatment you receive and to improve services. We would be grateful for your review. CLICK HERE TO SEND YOUR REVIEW
