OUT OF HOURS INFORMATION:

If you require urgent medical assistance that cannot wait until the surgery re-opens, please call 111 where you will be put through to the NHS 111 helpline who will be able to assist you further

NHS111 is a free to call, non-emergency, medical helpline operating in England.

The service is part of the country’s NHS telephone and triage and advisory services

 The Choose Well website is an excellent resource which includes details of services in the area, including local pharmacies and walk-in centres, and self-care information.  It provides a wealth of clear, clinically assured self-care information for patients, covering over 40 topics in 64 languages; each topic comes with a downloadable pdf leaflet to help you to self-care. www.choosewellmanchester.org.uk 

 We are now providing an electronic prescribing service.  If you nominate a preferred local pharmacy we can send your prescriptions directly to them electronically.  The advantage of this service is that you will not have to collect the prescription from the surgery, simply collect the medication from your pharmacy.  If you are interested, please go to your preferred pharmacy and they can arrange.

 

 PATIENT NHS CHECKS

 You may be entitled to an NHS Health Check please check with Reception.

This involves an appointment with the HCA who will record medical details, check height, weight, blood pressure and relevant blood tests.  She will then review your case following the results.

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.
