Summary Care Records
Dr Evans and Partners are already live with SCR. Information regarding this is given below. If you do not want your records to be made available in this way, please complete the Opt Out form below and send in to Michael Mack-Smith, Practice Manager so we can update your records.
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.
For further information visit the NHS Care records website or the HSCIC Website
Patient access is a new system that enables patients to order their repeat medication, book appointments, and view aspects of their medical records online.
Patient Access has now replaced the old online system
There will no longer be any need for patients to type in their medication - as soon as a patient is registered they will see all their current repeat medication, and just have to tick the items required.
A number of future appointments will also be available for booking online. Appointments can also be cancelled through the system.
All patients over 16 years old can register.
To do so, each patient must come in person to the surgery with two forms of ID, one of which must be photographic. You will have to fill out a form and then your registration details will be prepared for collection from the surgery within 48 hours.
We would encourage all patients to register for this service - It is really good!
All practices must include the NHS number as the primary identifier in all NHS clinical correspondence. We confirm that the NHS number for all patients is included in any referral generated by the GPs.
Online ordering of repeat prescriptions:
We currently offer the facility for patients to request their prescriptions online. Patients may also order their prescription by emailing the reception team directly : Painswick.email@example.com
GP2GP record transfer
Dr Evans and partners confirm that the GP2GP transfers of medical records is already active and we send and receive patient records via this system, wherever possible.
