APPOINTMENTS

If attending the surgery, please ring our front doorbell at the time of your appointment and we will advise you on where to wait. If the waiting room is at full capacity, please be aware that you may be asked to wait outside or in your car.

Please do not attend if you have any symptoms of coronavirus.

Thank you for continuing to work alongside us and protect each other. 

Enhanced Summary Care Record

The Summary Care Record (SCR) is an electronic record of important patient information, created from GP medical records. It can be seen and used by authorised staff in other areas of the health and care system involved in your direct care. Your SCR is a short summary of your GP medical records (medication, allergy and adverse reaction information). This means they can give you better care if you need health care away from your usual doctor's surgery: in an emergency, when you're on holiday, when your surgery is closed, at out-patient clinics & when you visit a pharmacy.

You can also choose to have additional helpful information added to your SCR – creating an “Enhanced Summary Care Record”. It can include the following:

  

  • Your long term health conditions such as asthma, diabetes, heart problems or rare medical conditions.
  • Your relevant medical history – clinical procedures that you have had, why you need a particular medicine, the care you are currently receiving and clinical advice to support your future care.
  • Your healthcare needs and personal preferences – you may have particular communication needs, a long term condition that needs to be managed in a particular way, or you may have made legal decisions or have preferences about your care that you would like to be known.
  • Immunisations – details of previous vaccinations, such as tetanus and routine childhood jabs.
  • Please note: specific sensitive information such as any fertility treatments, sexually transmitted infections, pregnancy terminations or gender reassignment will not be included, unless you specifically ask for any of these items to be included.
 
How will additional information help me?
Essential details about your healthcare can be very difficult to remember, particularly when you are unwell. Having additional information in your SCR means that when you need healthcare, you will be helped to recall this vital information. This can further increase the quality of your care and empower you if you need some help to communicate your complex care needs.

 

Please speak to reception if you would like to activate your Enhanced Summary Care Record.
