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.

ExerciseWorks

Heading

Before exercising always follow these simple tips from http://www.exercise-works.org

• Take all medications as recommended by your doctor or pharmacist.
• The goals of your program should be to improve mobility, your ability to perform and enjoy activities of daily living such as cooking or walking in the park with friends, and improve your overall fitness.
• Choose low-impact activities such as walking, cycling or water exercises, which involve large muscles groups and can be done continuously. Low-intensity, longer-duration workouts are preferred over high-intensity activities.

Heading

Start with shorter sessions (10 to 15 minutes) and gradually build up to 20 to 40 minutes, three or more days per week.
• Add high-repetition, low-resistance circuit training and range-of-motion stretching exercises two to three times per week.
• Take frequent breaks during activity if needed. Use the ratings of perceived exertion and out of breath scales scales rather than heart rate to measure the intensity of your workouts.
