Noticeboard

We are moving towards 'paper light' prescriptions. This means that most medications (there are some exceptions) will now be sent electronically to a pharmacy of your choice. Many patients already have this service set up, but if you don't please advise reception or your clinician of your preferred pharmacy and we can do this for you.

The surgery will be closed on the afternoon of 11th September 2019 for staff training. Should you require urgent medical attention that cannot wait until the surgery is open, please call 111.

Data Sharing and Summary Care Records

Our electronic clinical system enables secure transmission and receiving of medical records so that we can provide the best patient care to you and your family.

Below is some information which we hope you find informative. Should you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact the practice.

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.
