Summary Care Record (SCR) is an electronic record of important information about a patient’s health. It holds information about current medications, allergies and any bad reactions to medicines. 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. For further information, please ask reception. You can also phone the Summary Care Record Information Line on 0300 123 3020 or visit the website at www.nhscarerecords.nhs.uk.
Alternatively contact the Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) at the PCT on 0800 279 2535.
From 1st April 2014, appointments will begin at 7.30 am on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings. This is mainly to help patients who have work and other commitments and need to visit the surgery outside our usual hours. We have also reinstated our text reminder service from mid January 2014.
Early appointments will be staffed as follows:
Avoid waiting at A&E!
Remember Tracey our Nurse Practitioner is trained to deal with minor injuries, so please phone us and avoid visiting A&E by seeing Tracey or one of our Doctors on duty.
Staffing Update: Dr Heinz Van Raemdonck has announced his intention to resign from the Great Staughton Surgery partnership effective from 31st March 2014. We are grateful to him for this contribution to the practice of the last eight years, particularly as a partner for the last five years. We will miss his clinical skill and wish him well for the future (see detailed letter on this web page).
Training Closure Afternoon Dates: The Surgery will be closed from 12.30 for staff training on Thursday 24th April and Tuesday 17th June. Alternative arrangements have been made on these dates for medical emergencies.
How information about you helps us to provide better care: Anonymised information from your medical records can be used by the NHS to improve 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. If you have any concerns please pick up a leaflet from the surgery or visit www.nhs.uk/caredata. You have a choice - if you do not wish information to be used in this way please contact the surgery. PLEASE NOTE This has been postponed by the Government until later in the year.
