Data Sharing - We Need Your Decision
Many organisations in the NHS use a secure computer system called SystmOne to hold your records. With your consent, it allows the healthcare professionals who care for you to share your medical information with each other to make sure you receive the best possible care.
This leaflet and consent form explains the system more clearly. It is important that we have your decision recorded in your record. Please print, complete and sign the enclosed form and return it to reception either by post or person.
Did you know there are lots of other local services that you can go to directly for help, without the need to speak to your GP first? See our Self Help section on the website for useful links.
SystmOnline and Patient Partner - Cut the Queues!
Have you registered for SystmOnline?
You can book appointments, request medication and access part of your medical record including blood results. Please ask at reception...
Alternatively, please try Option 1 on our phone system, Patient Partner, and cut the queues to make, change or cancel an appointment.
Help us to help you by reducing our Did Not Attend rate and being able to offer more appointments.
Reviews for Long Term Medical Conditions
We are changing our recall system for patients with long term medical conditions who require annual monitoring reviews. Please see here for more information.
Named Accountable GP
All patients at the practice have a named accountable GP on their clinical record. Your named GP has overall responsibility for your care but you may see any GP of your choosing at the surgery. If you wish to find out who your named GP is, please ask at reception.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
