Access to your medical records
The NHS in England are introducing a new electronic record called the Summary Care Record (SCR), which will be used to support your emergency care. For more information click here. This will take you to a website which gives further information about the Summary Care Record – your emergency care summary.
Named Accountable GP for all patients
From the 1st of April 2015 all practices are required to allocate a named accountable GP to all patients. Our patients have been assigned a named GP and you can find out who this is at your next interaction with the practice. There will be no impact on the service you recieve regarding appointments or which GP you can see. The named GP will not necessarily be the one you see most.
Care Quality Commission
The Care Quality Commission is the independent regulator of all health and social care services in England.
Their job is to make sure that care provided by hospitals, dentists, ambulances, care homes and services in people’s own homes and elsewhere meets government standards of quality and safety.
They would like to hear from patients about the care they have received.
