Noticeboard

Flu clinics are now underway at the Practice and are bookable every Tuesday and Friday from 10am to 3pm throughout October - with extended sessions on 6th/13th/31st until 5pm.

Fluenz vaccinations for 2 and 3 year olds are now available and bookable with the practice nurse.

Text Reminders

We are now advising patients via text messages about their Doctors appointments.  If we have your mobile telephone number we will send you an automatic message the day before to remind you.  If you do not want to take advantage of this service then please let us know so we can update your records.

GP2GP

The practice is using a secure system to transfer some medical records between practices when registering with us or registering elsewhere.  This forms part of our contractual obligations with the NHS.

DRUG ALERT

Your medical record and you- Statement of Intent

It is important that your medical record is available when and where you need it.

You may feel, especailly if you have an extensive medical history, that it is very important for some of your medical information to be available if you were on holiday away from the practice area and or  taken ill and ended up in hospital.  Having your  Summary Care Record (SCR) availbale will help anyone treating you without your full medical record.  They will have access to information about any medication you may be taking and any drugs that you have a recorded allergy or sensitivity to.

Your SCR is automatically  updated on at least a daily basis to ensure that your information is as up to date as it can possibly be.

 

Of course if you do not want your medical records to be available in this way then you will need to let us know so that we can update your record.

 

Your medical records when leaving the practice.

It is very important that you are registered with a docotor near to where you live. We encourage patients to do this as soon as possible if they move out of the practice area.  Once you have re registered with a new GP, your medical records will be forwarded on to them via NHS England.

If you move to another  GP surgery it is likely that your electronic medical record will be availbale to them as soon as they register you at the practice. This is called GP2GP.
