Noticeboard

FLU SEASON! Coming soon!

Protect yourself from this dangerous disease this winter - we have appointments from 23 September available now for your annual flu jab.  If you are 65 or over, or suffer from a chronic condition eg diabetes, asthma, you are eligible for a free flu jab. 2, 3 and some 4 year olds (those not started school yet) are also eligible. 4-9 year olds will normally be vaccinated at school but we can vaccinate them if preferred or they have been missed at school.

We are holding a Saturday clinic on 23 September which you can either book or just walk in.

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.
