UPDATE 04.09.21 Influenza Vaccine Delivery Issues

Clinics booked for 18th September for the 65 years and overs is cancelled. The message received from the supplier is "due to unforeseen road freight challenges, there will be a delay to the scheduled delivery by one to two weeks." 

Once the Surgery knows more and has a confirmed date, we can once again rebook appointments. Until then all patients booked into the 18th September are cancelled and this may possibly effect the 25th September. Once we know more we will update you. 

We realise what a huge inconvenience this is to you, as well as to the Surgery. Please bear with us - as soon as we have a clear confirmed date we will be contacting again to rebook.
Thank you for your continued support

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.
