Change of Clinical Computer
We are changing our clinical electronic medical system the week beginning 16th June 2014.
All members of staff will be familiarising themselves with the new computer system and there may be a delays in clinics as well as appointment bookings and prescriptions over a 2-3 week period.
Please make sure that you have an adequate supply of your medications prior to the week beginning 16th June 2014.
There is no need for patients to do anything as all your electronic clinical records will be uploaded to the new system.
The new system will bring lots of benefits for both patients and staff such as access to online patient appointment booking as well as electronic prescriptions.
We will endeavour to keep any disruption to a minimum.
Thank you in advance for your patience.

Summary Care Record
Summary Care Records contain details of your key health information - medications, allergies and adverse reactions.
They are accessible to authorised healthcare staff in A&E departments throughout England and can support better, safer prescribing of medication for patients by providing up-to-date information on your allergies, previous adverse reactions and medications.
Patient care can be supported by healthcare staff having faster access to their medical information and patients may not be required to repeat information to different NHS staff treating them.
You will be asked for your permission before anyone looks at your Summary Care Record except in case of an emergency where you can't give permission e.g. if you are unconscious. If this happens, the member of staff will make a permanent note on their computer system to say why they have done so.
You can choose to have a summary care record. If you would like one, you don't need to do anything. it will happen automatically. If you don't want a Summary Care Record, print off a form from the link below, fill it in and hand it in to reception.

GP2GP: The Elecronic Transfer of Patient Records:
By the end of March 2015 your GP Practice will be able to send computer held patient records electronically to a patient's new surgery so they arrive much quicker than the paper notes, helping the doctors and nurses know the best way to treat you. This is called the GP2GP electronic transfer of patient records. The paper notes will continue to be sent via an NHS delivery service.
With GP2GP, your medical record is availale to your new doctor within a few minutes of registrations, enabling much safer care.
