Your surgery will be closed on Thursday 13th June form 12:30pm onwards for routine appointments. Your surgery is closed for routine appointments to enable your practice staff to attend an afternoon of education and training. If you need medical attention that afternoon and feel that your problem cannot wait until the following day or you cannot be helped by another community provider, for example your pharmacist, the local out of hours service, North Hampshire Urgent Care, will be providing medical care. You will need to call 111 (as you would out of hours at evenings and weekends) and they will involve NHUC if needed. Your surgery will be open for business as usual on Friday 14th June at 8:00am

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.
