Access to your GP Medical Records ( posted on Apr 16, 2018 )

 

Access to your GP Medical Record

Our Medical Record Computer System is set-up so that if you receive medical care from one of the organisations below, they can, with your explicit permission, gain access to your GP Medical Record, thus helping them in their care of you.

 

Community Nursing Team

Onecall & Echo

St Wilfrid’s Hospice

GP Extended Access

The nurses and other health professionals who work in the community and visit patients at their home

The team who coordinate Urgent Care and End of Life Care in the community

The team who Provide Tailored End of Life Care in the Community & at their Chichester Hospice

The new Minor Injury & Minor Illness clinics providing additional GP Appointments

 

These teams will not be able to access your medical record if you have not been registered with them to receive their services.  They will also ask for your Explicit Consent to view your GP Medical Record when they first see or speak to you.  If you say no, they will not access your record.

 

If you do not want one or more of these organisations to have this ability, please ask for a Sharing Dissent form from Reception.  Please make such a decision carefully as it will mean that even if you subsequently gave them explicit consent, they would not be able to access your record until they have spoken to the Surgery.  This would be delayed overnight and at weekends when the surgery is closed and potentially when they need such access the most.

There is a shortage of Hepatitis A. ( posted on Mar 16, 2018 )

If you have had a Hepatitis A vaccination and are due a booster, we are only giving these at 5 years as they are now known to cover you until then.

Accessible Information Standard ( posted on Mar 14, 2018 )

The Standard sets out a specific, consistent approach to identifying, recording, flagging, sharing and meeting the information and communication support needs of patients, service users, carers and parents with a disability, impairment or sensory loss.

 

Overview of the Standard

NHS England have produced a short summary document which provides an overview of the Standard for patients, service users, carers and parents.

 

Click on this link to see the summary document This is available in a range of formats.

 

We strive to record any accessible information to support our patients in a variety of ways, but please contact us if you have a need under this standard that may not be obvious to us. 

Self care Newsletter ( posted on Oct 16, 2017 )

Please see Alternative to seeing a Gp for lots of useful information, as well as the Chichester Alliance of Practices - CHamp  - newsletter about self care.

Elecronic Prescription Service (EPS) ( posted on Aug 14, 2017 )

Electronic Prescription Service

Once you have signed up to electronic prescription service, your medication can  be collected directly from your chosen pharmacy without having to pick the prescription up from the surgery first. Controlled medication still requires a physical prescription - but this does not stop other medication going to your chosen pharmacy. Please contact your local pharmacy or ask at reception.

This means changes for people requesting ear irrigation (ear syringing) - please see "Clinics and Services" tab for further information we will have another update for you in May 2018.
