Noticeboard

We are following advice from NHS England that all patients must be triaged first before they can be seen. We are aware this has caused an increase in our phone traffic, we ask patients to be patient with us during this very busy time, or use the E-consult or Patient Access Service if they have access to the internet. 
Please think before you shout or abuse our staff, we are trying our best and do not tolerate abuse of any kind.

FLU - We are vaccinating patients on an appointment only basis, those who are in the at-risk categories will be actively encouraged to attend and the new over 50-64 co-hort will also be able to book in, depending on flu supplies. Please call the Practice to check if you can book in. 

COVID Vaccine - We are not able to offer this service currently, patients eligible will be contacted in due course. Please do not contact the Practice to book in, or for further details. This information will be shared once it is available. 

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.
