This is not for direct communication to GPs on medical matters or a means of ordering repeat prescriptions
YOU HAVE BEEN ASSIGNED TO A NAMED GP
All patients on our list are now linked to a named GP.
This does not mean that you can only see that GP, you carry on seeing which one you wish as a preference.
We are not writing to each patient to tell them who they are assigned to, you can ask on your next visit or you can call us.
This is a helpful administrative exercise within the Practice to help with workflow distribution for all the letters, test results and general correspondence that we receive.

Sharing Patient Information
NHS Summary Care Record
A Summary Care Record will give Healthcare Staff important information about medicines you are taking, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions you have had to medicines. It will also include your name, date of birth and unique NHS number.
Giving Healthcare Staff access to this information can prevent mistakes being made when caring for you in an emergency or when your GP Practice is closed.
The Surgery plans to go 'live' on Summary Care uploads in February 2015. If you wish to opt out you need to click the link on the right hand side (5) to see the download link for the opt-out form and return this to the practice as soon as possible
