The Following Online Services Are Available In The Practice
Summary Care Record (SCR)
SCR contains important information about any medicines you are taking, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions you have had to medicines. It gives health care staff to access informations which can prevent mistakes being made when caring for you in an emergency or when GP practice is closed.
You can choose whether or not to have a SCR. If you choose to Opt out then you have to let your GP practice know by filling in and returning the Opt out form. However, if you choose to have the SCR, you don't need to do anything, it will happen automatically.
Only healthcare staff with a NHS Smart card with chip and PIN can access your SCR. They will only see the information they need to do their job, are directly involved in your care and the staff's access details are recorded.
You can ask your GP practice to print out a copy of your SCR from the computer system. You cannot change any information on the SCR, however, if you see any errors or incorrect information, you should let the practice know.
Our Practice enabled automated uploads to the SCR, in 2014 and we were one of the few practices to go Live, last year.

Patient online access to the GP records
Statement of Intent: We intend to give patients on-line access to their GP record on-line, giving them a detailed information from their Medical record. There may be circumstances where a GP may believe it is not in the best interest of the patient to share all information record, for e.g. where it will cause harm to their physical or Mental health.
We are changing our current computer system to EMIS WEB in June 2015, we hope that by Sept. 2015 we will be available to have this service up and running. We will publish further information, regarding registration etc. to gain access to this facility and you can contact the practice from September 2015 onwards.
