Noticeboard

Christmas and New Year 2017

Patients with urgent care needs are able to access the Out of Hours Service between 18.30 and 08.00 weekdays and throughout the weekend/bank holiday via NHS 111.

 

Over the winter period (22nd December 2017 – 2nd January 2018), with the exception of the following days, pharmacies are open as normal:

 

  • Monday 25th December
  • Tuesday 26th December
  • Monday 1st January

 

Where prescriptions are required during this period, details are provided of the pharmacies that are open and are available at www.nhs.uk and local media. Please note that all pharmacy opening times are available at www.nhs.uk.        

                

The Practice would like to wish all our patients a very Happy and Healthy Christmas and New Year.

 

 

         

Named accountable GP

It is now a contractual requirement that all patients, including children, have a named accountable GP. Dr. Guilding's Surgery is a single-handed practice and all patients are registered with him therefore he will be your named accountable GP.  Dr. Millais will continue to work at the practice and patients may request appointments with her in the same way as before.

Patient Participation Group

The Practice is keen to develop a PPG ( Patient Participation Group) for the purpose of obtaining the views of our patients and enabling the practice to obtain feedback from the our patients on the services we deliver. If you would like to be involved in this process please visit the ' Have your say' page of this web site and complete a registration form or ask at reception for a paper copy to complete.

 

 

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.
