The Staff and GP's would like to say a big THANK YOU to patients for their generous Christmas Gifts 

You will probably know that your doctors' surgeries and your local hospital are under extreme pressure especially as there are a lot of viral infections around at this time of year.  We want to be able to provide the best care to all of our patients but especially those who are the most unwell.  To help us to help you in this way, there are a few simple things that you can do:

  • Before ringing your surgery, remember that your local Pharmacy can help with most self-limiting illnesses.
  • Stock up on simple preparations and medicines, such as paracetamol, calpol/nurofen for children, anti-diarrhoeal medicine rehydration mixtures and indigestion remedies (all available from your Pharmacy) 
  • Remember to stock up on any of your repeat medications in good time for Christmas.
  • Please spread this message to your family and friends.

Staff Update - We are very sorry to let our patients know that Dr Rosie Frankenberg will be retiring from the Surgery at the beginning of February 2020.  We want to thank Rosie for  her hard work and contribution to our Surgery since she joined us as a Partner in April 2018 and prior to then when she helped us a locum GP.  Good luck and best wishes are sent from us all.

Did you know you can still have your free flu vaccination ? If you are aged 65 or over or are in an "at Risk" group please ask Reception to book you in for your vaccination.  Flu can be unpleasant and it is important to ensure that sufficient patients do have their vaccination to safeguard enough immunity to protect the wider population.

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.
