NOTICE TO ALL PATIENTS

I am delighted to advise you that with effect from 1st July 2020 I have been joined by two further doctors to provide medical services to you. These two doctors will become Partners of the Practice with me. The new doctors are Dr Wasim who was until recently a salaried GP working at the Practice and Dr Nazir, who has previously been at the Practice as a GP Registrar and Locum GP.

 


NOTICE TO PATIENTS

OUR TEMPORARY phone line for patient use which is 0161 628 5604 will be withdrawn AFTER Friday 10th July 2020.


APPOINTMENT SUSPENSION

Due to risk of Coronavirus infection. Following local and national guidance we are no longer able to book routine appointments. If you have a routine appointment booked with a GP, this will now be a TELEPHONE CONSULTATION. Please DO NOT come to the Practice unless you are asked to do so by a Doctor. Routine and emergency telephone appointments are available everyday but not pre bookable


Our doors are closed for the foreseeable future. Please only attend the surgery if asked by a GP/Nurse. Samples & correspondence can be posted through the letter box. Our phone lines are still open

Thank you - We are here to help and support you.


Links to Novel Coronavirus resources below.

We just wanted to share a few useful links with you about Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). These links share information relevant for patients. 

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.
