Appointment Reminders

Would you like a reminder of your appointment time and date sending to your mobile phone? If so please contact the reception team on 01274 697600.

Patients Not Attending

During May 2015, 77 patients failed to attend a prebooked appointment with one of the doctors wasting 13hrs 20mins of surgery time.

61 patients didn't attend prebooked nurse appointments wasting 16hrs 20mins of surgery time and 18 patients didn't attend with the attached teams (physio etc) wasting 7hrs 35mins.

Repeated missed appointment will result in the patient being removed from the practice list and will need to register at another surgery.

Electronic Prescribing

In May 2015,the practice and its pharmacies went live on a system called Electronic Prescribing. Initially this will be used just for patients who have regular repeat medications. This system has the benefit of a greater security between the practice and the pharmacy. As a practice, we encourage all our patients to have a conversation with their pharmacy about the scheme and make a nomination of receiving pharmacy as soon as possible. Please note patients who already have a chemist receiving their prescriptions still need to have this conversation at the pharmacy.

Important Information about your record

Important information about your patient records held at this practice.

Patient choices regarding sharing of health records.

Electronic records are kept in all the places where you receive healthcare. Often NHS care services can usually only share information from these records by letter, email, fax or phone. At times, this can slow down your treatment and mean information is hard to access.

The practice uses a secure computer system that allows the sharing of full electronic recods across different NHS care services. This information is NOT about your Summary Care record (SCR), it is asking your sharing preferences regarding your full detailed electronic record.

We are telling you about this as you have a choice to make. You can chose to share or not to share your full electronic record with other NHS care services where you are treated and whether we can view records held by those other services.

If you choose to make your record shareable, your clinical details will only be viewable by clinical teams who are treating you. Each clinical team which cares for you now or in the future will ask your permission to view your shared record* You can also ask for part of your record to be made private - not shareable. All record accesses are recorded and auditable.

If you chose not to make your record shareable, we will respect your wishes and will do our best to make your care safe and efficient. However, denying the clinical teams caring for your the ability to access important clinical details could compromise your care.

You have two choices:

1. Sharing out - This controls whether your full electronic patient record can be shared with other NHS care ervices where you are treated. Let us know if your records should be Shareable or Not Shareable

2. Sharing In - This controls whether you agree for this practice to view informationyou've agreed to share at other NHS care services. Let us know if we can view your shared record from elsewhere or if you do not want it to be viewable to us.

Please let us know your choices. You  can change your mind at any time by informing us.

* In the event of an emergency

In certain circumstances, such as if your are unconscious or there is a court order, healthcarestaff may look at your record without asking you. If they have to do this, as note will be made on your record. If we share information  without your permission, we will make sure that we keep to the Data Protection Act 1998, the NHS confidentiality code of practice and other national guidelines on best practice.
