Noticeboard

Please be aware there is a national issue with Vodafone's network calling Landline phones. Therefore if you try to ring the Surgery you will be able to hear us however we cannot here you. Please try to use an alternative number if possible, if this is not then our receptionists will try to call you back.


In May we had 302 appointments that were not attended. This is equates to 3,830 minutes. This is unfortunately an increase of 64 appointments compared to last month. If you cannot attend please cancel your appointment! Thank you.

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. Your surgery does partake in this scheme.

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.
