FRIENDS AND FAMILY TEST
From the 1st December 2014 all GP practices are required to ask patients the Friends & Family test questions that will be monitored by NHS England on a monthly basis. The two questions are as follows:
How likely are you to recommend our GP Surgery to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?
Can you tell us why you gave that response?
Please let us know how we are doing and answer these questions by clicking on the 'Friends & Family Survey' tab at the right of the page
Age UK will have a table at the Practice on Thursday 18th December between 9.30am - 12.30pm. Feel free to pop along and find out what they can offer you. You can find them on the first floor between the Lander and Three Spires Practices.

SUMMARY CARE RECORDS GO LIVE 22 October 2014
Summary Care Records are being introduced to improve the safety and quality of patient care. Because the Summary Care Record is an electronic record, it will give healthcare staff faster, easier access to essential information about you, and help to give you safe treatment during an emergency or when your GP surgery is closed.
A Summary Care Record is an electronic record that is stored at a central location, and will only contain important health information such as:
- whether you're taking any prescription medication
- whether you have any allergies
- whether you've previously had a bad reaction to any medication
Access to your Summary Care Record will be strictly controlled. The only people who can see the information will be healthcare staff directly involved in your care who have a special smartcard and access number (like a chip and pin credit card). Healthcare staff will always ask your permission every time they need to look at your Summary Care Record.
For more information about Summary Care Records, visit the website: www.nhscarerecords.nhs.uk.
