Noticeboard

October 2017

Our children's flu vaccines have now arrived. Children who were 2 or 3 on 31st August 2017 are eligible. Please ring for an appointment if you would like your child vaccinated. Primary school aged children will be vaccinated at school.

We have now installed hearing loops at both the reception and dispensary counters. We would like to thank The CREAMER Fund for financing this important improvement to our practice for patients who are hard of hearing. We have added signs to each counter to help them know where to stand for the best reception. There is also a portable device available for use in the consultation rooms. Please ask at reception if you would like this to be made available when seeing a doctor or nurse. the portable device can be used without a hearing aid if necessary.

September 2017

We are now taking bookings for our flu clinic on Saturday 7th October. Eligible ADULT patients (over 65s, pregnant women, carers, patients with certain chronic diseases, immunosuppressed and obese patients) should phone reception to book. Further information relating to flu vaccinations for children will follow shortly.

BOOKING APPOINTMENTS  You will be able to access the appointments booking facility. The on-line appointment booking facility currently offers appointments with doctors only. Some types of appointment will still need to be made via our receptionists, for example nursing appointments, baby checks, minor operations, coil fittings, or complex / multiple problems that may require a double appointment (the standard length of a doctor’s appointment is 10 minutes). If you have a problem which is medically urgent, then we advise that you contact us by phone in the usual way.

VIEWING SCR OR FULL CODED RECORDS The SCR is the data that is avaiable on the 'Spine' that allows other health professionals to have they information they need to treat a patient. The Full Coded Record contains additional information from your records. When you register you will be given an information sheet about what the data you can access.

SECURITY & CONFIDENTIALITY
We regard security and confidentiality as extremely important. Communications to the practice are encrypted, and security is at the same high level as for internet banking. It would only be possible to access your records by using your chosen PIN number / password. Needless to say, do not disclose your pin number to anyone. Each patient wishing to take advantage of this facility needs to sign individually a consent form, stating that they agree to their record being available to them on-line.
