03rd June 2020: As a practice we are looking at how we continue our current social distancing measures whilst enabling us to see patients safely at the surgery. We only have a limited amount of space therefore we request patients do not come early for your appointment please arrive on time.

Please come by yourself to your appointment unless you need a carer or are unable to source child care.

It is important that patients work with us to protect the NHS, not just for unwell patients with COVID-19 but all other urgent conditions e.g. chronic heart conditions, cancer care.

  • DO think before ringing; We do not have the capacity to field minor queries for well patients.
  1. DO NOT use services unless absolutely necessary
  2. DO NOT request Med3s / reports / Holiday Cancellation Letters for COVID-19
  3. YOU MUST follow self-isolation/social distancing guidance
  4. DO use Electronic Prescribing Service to order NORMAL QUANTITIES of repeat medications
  5. DO be patient with all staff – everyone is doing their bit and working flat out

Your understanding at this difficult time for all of us is appreciated.

 

 

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.
