Boroughbury Medical Centre 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: https://app.doctorlink.com/register
For all urgent appointments, we ask that you undertake a symptom assessment through DoctorLink.

The total number of Doctor appointments lost to patients who ‘did not attend ’ during these months was sadly
