Noticeboard

 Welcome to our new staff

Our new nurse practitioner Beverley Jobson-Cale has now started clinics in our Acute Same day service.

Sara Phelps has joined us as Team Leader

Amy Milnes is our new receptionist

In early April our new Healthcare Assistant will start work with our Nurse team.

Sadly we have said goodbye to Nurse Angela who has been a big part of our clinical team and has taken early retirement. We wish her well as she moves onto a new chapter in her life.

 Appointments

A small number of online appointments are availabe to book. We are planning to make improvements to our online offering in the next few months.

We continue to have a very high number of patients who fail to attend appointments they have made each day so please do remember to cancel so they can be offered to other patients who may really need them . You can cancel your appointments online. 
 

 Online Access to records

We now offer patients access to their records. We will have further information about this on our website shortly. Please note you will need to provide photographic ID to get the required log on. Please ask reception for more information.

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.
