Noticeboard

The practice is introducing a new telephone Prescription Ordering Service from 14th August 2017.

 

The NHS Prescription Ordering Centre (POC) service is an easy service for you to use to order your repeat prescription.

You will speak to a dedicated receptionist, who will be able to order your repeat prescription from your Doctor’s surgery and either send your prescription directly to your normal Chemist or have the prescription ready for you to collect from your surgery.

 

Why use this new service?

The POC service makes ordering your repeat prescriptions quicker and easier. Most surgeries do not accept repeat medicines requests over the phone and this new service will enable you to do this.

                                          ******

The surgery has experienced a significant intrusion of its phone lines.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC), which is an independent regulator of health and adult social care in England, has completed its inspection of the Cam & Uley Family Practice.

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.
