Summary Care Records
Our practice is participating in the NHS national programme for IT. We share a summary of your vital clinical information i.e. Medication, Allergies and Adverse reaction to drugs, with the NHS Emergency Care Providers like A&E, Out of Hours GP and walk-in centres. This is to ensure that our patients receive safer and quality care during urgent or emergency situations. Please do let us know if you would like to opt-out of this initiative. You can read more about this by clicking the Summary Care Records option under further information on the right of this page where you can also download the opt-out form which you can complete and bring into the surgery should you wish to opt-out.
Accident & Emergency
We along with all local practices are looking at ways of reducing unnecessary visits to A&E as this service should only be used for accidents or an emergency that may be life threatening. Please click on the link to view or download an information leaflet Accident & Emergency Use Leaflet There is further information about the use of A&E and services you can access in your area.
