WELCOME TO THE PRACTICE
This practice is a
partnership working from two surgeries. Along with other local practices we are
part of the Richmond Primary Care Group. Our aim is to provide a friendly, caring
family doctor service.
INFLUENZA VACCINATIONS - We recommend that if you are aged 65 or over or in an at risk group you have the annual flu injection. Please book your appointment with reception. Flu immunisation (nasal spray) is also offered to children aged 2, 3 and 4 years - please ask at reception.
EBOLA OUTBREAK - If you become unwell with a fever and have recently travelled within the at-risk areas, please do not come to the surgery or a walk-in-centre. Please contact the surgery and a doctor will offer the appropriate advice. ON-LINE BOOKING - We would like to remind our patients that you are now able to book your appointment on- line. If you are not already registered for on-line services, please enquire at reception. We do hope you will find this additional method of making an appointment convenient; please do contact us if you have any comments.
Summary Care Record
There is a new Central NHS Computer System called the Summary Care Record (SCR). The Summary Care Record is meant to help emergency doctors and nurses help you when you contact them when the surgery is closed. Initially, it will contain just your medications and allergies.
Later on as the central NHS computer system develops, (known as the 'Summary Care Record' – SCR), other staff who work in the NHS will be able to access it along with information from hospitals, out of hours services, and specialists letters that may be added as well.
You can choose to opt out of the scheme. To do so you will need to complete a form available from reception.
Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC)
Confidential information from your medical records can be used by the NHS to improve the services offered so we can provide the best possible care for everyone. This information along with your postcode and NHS number but not your name, are sent to a secure system where it can be linked with other health information. This allows those planning NHS services or carrying out medical research to use information from different parts of the NHS in a way which does not identify you. You have a choice. If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not have to do anything. If you have any concerns or wish to prevent this from happening, please speak to practice staff or ask at reception for a copy of the leaflet "How information about you helps us to provide better care".
