Please help us to help you by using Doctorlink
We are trying out a new way of patients requesting help or appointments. This is so that you will not need to spend as long on the telephone, waiting for reception to book your appointment.
We are asking you ( or someone else on your behalf ) to have a symptom assessment through DoctorLink.
The symptom assessment 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 at your GP Practice, 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 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. If you are not able to use Doctorlink, contact the reception via telephone.

Community Connectors are organised by the Council for Voluntary Services. Our local branch covers Burnley, Pendle and Rossendale. The Community Connector role helps patients with emotional, social and practical needs access a range of local, non-medical and non-clinical services, often provided by the community and voluntary sector. Services include, but are not limited to, local community support groups, bereavement support, financial support, exercise groups, social groups and one-to-one peer mentoring.
