Noticeboard

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update:

Due to the ever developing situation with COVID-19 we have had to change how we offer appointments.

All GP appointments will be changed to telephone appointments. Please do not attend the surgery, a clinician will call you on the day of your appointment. They will agree a plan with you for your ongoing care.

Nurse and HCA (blood tests, bp etc) will be screened before attendance to protect the health of other patients and staff. These patients will receive a phone call prior to their appointment.

Thank you for your understanding and we will continue to post regular updates.

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.
