Noticeboard

As of Monday 16th March 2020


Due to the current CORONAVIRUS pandemic, for the safety of all our patients and staff and to reduce the risk of onward transmission, we will not be booking any face to face appointments directly without our doctors consulting with you first.


We request that you make contact with the practice via econsult through our website. If this is not possible for you, please call the practice to book a telephone appointment; the doctor will decide upon whether you need to attend the surgery and you will be booked in accordingly.


This will be the situation for the foreseeable future, and only patients with booked appointments should be attending the surgery.


Dr Nazaff Adam

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.
