Noticeboard

Book online

To save you coming to the surgery, we have made it possible to update your address details and also your clinical information through our website, you can now also book and cancel appointments. 

 

Blood Tests
Did you know that you can have blood tests taken at the surgery now? If your GP has requested you need to have a blood test, ask at reception and book in to see one of our highly trained healthcare assistants.
 

Named GP for all patients

From April 2015, all practices are required under their contract to allocate a 'named GP' to each of their patients. The 'named GP' will have overall responsibility for the care and support that the surgery provides for our patients.

This does not mean that you will only see your named GP and your care will be provided by the most appropriate member of the clinical team.

Having a 'named GP' will not prevent you from seeing any other doctor or nurse of your choice. You will not need to take any further action. If you have any queries regarding your 'named GP', please ask when you next visit the practice.

If you have a preference for which GP you would like to have as your 'named GP', the practice will make every reasonable effort to accommodate your request.

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.
