NEW INVESTMENT AT OUR PRACTICE

PATIENT PRACTICE DEVELOPMENT 

We are delighted to announce that following an extensive effort by the practice over the last few years we have finally been granted approval by NHS England for a Practice extension. 

From NHS England's Primary Care Infrastructure Fund, we have been given a grant for two thirds of the cost of this project - 279142.00.  The remainder of the cost is being met by the practice.  We are aiming to complete this project by August 2017.

We appreciate that you as patients have been very supportive of the practice over the years - modernisation and extension is long overdue.

This will enable us to update and modernise the practice for you.  We will also be able to provide you with better access, more appointments and additional services.

THE ESTATE AND TECHNOLOGY TRANSFORMATION FUND IS DESIGNED TO IMPROVE GP PREMISES AND TECHNLOGY TO GIVE PATIENTS A BETTER SERVICE.

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.
