ACCESSING YOUR MEDICAL RECORDS

We are encouraging all patients to register to use EMIS Access

Once registered, you will:

Be able to view your results (if analysed locally)

Be able to book/cancel appointments

Be able to order your repeat medication (please allow 48hrs)

Be able to view all aspects of your medical records including immunisations (if added electronically)

All of the above means, that you will have instant access to your medical records wherever you are, this will minimise your need to contact the Surgery.

NEW Online Consultations

 This brand new service will allow you to seek help and advice at any time of the day through an interactive website. You can access this through your Patient Access online account under the section called Health Advice. You can also use this service to request medication and sick notes.

Please Note this service is for non urgent queries and has a turnaround of 2 working days

NEW Video Consultations

As we are currently in the Governments 'Delay Stage' we have decided to use new methods to offer care to our patients. Your clinician may offer you this service if they feel your symptoms would benefit a video consultation

Coronavirus Update - 17th March 2020

Please be aware that from the 13th March 2020, all routine face to face appointments have had to be cancelled in line with Public Health guidance regarding the coronavirus situation. Online booking of the appointments has also been suspended.

Please contact the practice if you have an urgent medical problem where you will be offered a telephone consultation with a clinician where needed or given other appropriate advice and guidance. For a non-urgent problem, you will be given a telephone appointment. One of our clinicians will assess you over the phone first and will make decision at that point. You may be offered a video consultation if felt appropriate by the clinician.

We also would recommend you make use of our website where you can complete an on-line consultation. Any repeat prescription request can be requested online via patient access or can be given to your local pharmacy.

** PLEASE NOTE THE CURRENT TURNAROUND TIME FOR PRESCRIPTIONS IS 3 WORKING DAYS - ONLY REQUEST YOUR USUAL AMOUNT - MEDICATION WILL NOT BE ISSUED EARLY **

During this time we are encouraging all of our patients to request their medication via Patient Access online. If you haven't registered for this service please contact the surgery to do so. If you are unable to use this service you can set up with your local pharmacy to request the medication on your behalf and the prescription will be sent electronically back to the pharmacy for you to collect. You are still able to drop a request into the surgery post-box at the front of the building, this is checked daily or email the request to the surgery via our email address e82096.sheepcotmedicalcentre@nhs.net

You can request your sick/fit notes now through the new online consult tool via patient access health advice. You can also request this by popping a written request into he surgery post-box at the front of the building or sending it via email to e82096.sheepcotmedicalcentre@nhs.net. They can now be sent back to you via text message with a pdf attachment that you can email to your employer. The government has announced plans to issue these notes for Coronavirus infections through NHS 111, if required by your employer. Please see the NHS 111 website for details.

WE ARE NO LONGER HANDING OUT PRESCRIPTIONS OR SICK NOTES

 

Appointments

If you have booked a routine appointment with the GP within the next two weeks, this will still go ahead but as a telephone or video consultation. The GP will try and phone you as close to your appointment as possible.

If you have an appointment with a Nurse or HCA then a member of staff will contact you to discuss the best way of dealing with your problem.

Baby immunisations and 8 week health checks will still go ahead as long as the child or any member of the family does not have any of the symptoms of the Coronavirus.

In some cases the GP may still ask you to come into the surgery. This will be a pre arranged appointment with the GP.

For all of the above, you must adhere to these guidelines when attending the surgery;

On arrival you MUST wait in your car, the clinician you are seeing will call you on your mobile when they are ready to see you. You will be asked to enter the building via the back entrance, the Clinician will take you straight into the consulting room and then lead you back out the same entrance.

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO ENTER THE SURGERY WITHOUT A PRE ARRANGED AGREEMENT.

Patient Participation Group

The Patient Participation Group (PPG) exists to ensure that the patients’ views on all matters relating to our health and well-being are fully represented to the Practice.

To do this, we want to hear from people about their experiences, views, and ideas for making services better.

There is a suggestion and comments box on reception and patients can join the PPG, which meets in the evening once a month.

If you are interested in joining the PPG or have any suggestions or comments you would like the PPG to discuss please contact the Chair Jack Alvarez on ppgsmc@gmail.com
