NOTICE

TO ALL OUR PATIENTS

 

Can we please ask for your help and support for the practice over the next few months?

 

As you know, Dr Hee has retired and Dr Swift is starting her maternity leave. We are aware that it will be more difficult to book an appointment during this period and we are working as hard as we can to reduce any impact on our patients. We have been successful in recruiting three new GPs who will be starting over the next few months.

 

Although this is a period of change, we are very optimistic and excited about the future of the practice.

 

Thank-you for bearing with us during this period of transition.

 

Dr Kath Markus, Dr Josie Wenham and Dr Kathryn Lucas (The Partners)

Summary Care Record

There is a new Central NHS Computer System called the Summary Care Record (SCR). It is an electronic record which contains information about the medicines you take, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had.

 

Why do I need a Summary Care Record?

Storing information in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when your GP practice is closed.

This information could make a difference to how a doctor decides to care for you, for example which medicines they choose to prescribe for you.

Who can see it?

Only healthcare staff involved in your care can see your Summary Care Record. 

 

How do I know if I have one?

Over half of the population of England now have a Summary Care Record. You can find out whether Summary Care Records have come to your area by looking at our interactive map or by asking your GP

Do I have to have one?

No, it is not compulsory. If you choose to opt out of the scheme, then you will need to complete a form and bring it along to the surgery. You can use the form at the foot of this page.
