Great Staughton Surgery now uploads Summary Care Records which, with the patient's permission and only when necessary, may be viewed by healthcare agencies such as the hospital and Out of Hours.

Message from Dr David Roberts:As my retirement D-day approaches at the end of July, there is still plenty to do to hand over the reins of managing the practice and patient care to my wonderful colleagues and successors at Great Staughton Surgery. Dr Stephanie Johnson, Dr Chris Loxley and Dr Stuart Shields will make a worthy team with all the fantastic staff in the practice, leaving me happy and content that the practice has a great future providing quick and friendly access to the best care that we have always aspired to. I wish the practice every best wish for the future. As for me, after a holiday at the beginning of August, my immediate task will be to declutter my brain and home and think about what the future holds. There are some interesting things ahead - if you are interested to know more, please follow this page, post a picture and (hopefully nice) comment to remind me of you, and let me know what is happening with you in the future. I promise not to post pictures of my breakfast and tell you every time I sneeze, but hopefully future updates will be of interest. Please do keep in touch, https://www.facebook.com/drrobertsgoesforth?ref=hl.
Named Accountable GP:From 1st April 2015, practices have been required to allocate a named accountable GP to all their patients. Your Named Accountable GP will be the same doctor as your Registered GP; however if you wish to change this we will do our best to accommodate this so please let us know. Please remember that you are always free to book your appointment with whoever you wish, regardless of your registered GP, and this may change according to the type of health issue you have.
Passport Countersigning:From November 2014, GP can no longer countersign passport photographs. For information on who is now able to sign, click on the link: https://www.gov.uk/countersigning-passport-applications website.

Friends and Family Test (FFT): From 1st December 2014 all GP practices will be asking their patients "How likely are you to recommend our GP practice to friends and family if they needed similar care and treatment?". This is a way of gathering feedback, so please feel free to fill in a form and drop it in the box provided. Please note this is not compulsory and all responses will be anonymous.
