Home Visits

Home visits are for the totally housebound or very seriously ill. Please telephone before 10.30am and be prepared to give the receptionist some indication of the nature and urgency of the problem. The doctor will usually wish to speak to you before arranging to visit.

Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Health Centre

Summary Care Record your emergency care summary


The NHS in England is introducing the Summary Care Record, which will be used in emergency care.


The record will contain information about any medicines you are taking, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had to ensure those caring for you have enough information to treat you safely.


Your Summary Care Record will be available to authorised healthcare staff providing your care anywhere in England, but they will ask your permission before they look at it. This means that
if you have an accident or become ill, healthcare staff treating you will have immediate access to important information about your health.


Your GP practice is supporting Summary Care Records and as a patient you have a choice:


• Yes

I would like a Summary Care Record you do not need to do anything and a Summary
Care Record will be created for you.

 

No I do not want a Summary Care Record enclosed is an opt out form. Please complete the form and hand It to a member of the GP practice staff.


If you need more time to make your choice you should let your GP Practice know.
For more information talk to your GP practice staff, visit the local website www. norharptonshre nhs. uk/scr

or www.nhscarerecords.nhs.uk or telephone the dedicated NHS Summary Care Record Information Line on 0300 123 3020.


Additional copies of the opt out form can be collected from the GP practice or printed from the website

SCR_Opt_out_form.pdf

Please return the completed opt out form should you wish not to have a summary care record created.

 

www.nhscarerecords.nhs.uk or requested from the dedicated NHS Summary Care Record Information Line on 0300 123 3020.

 

You can choose not to have a Summary Care Record and you can change your mind at any time by informing your GP practice.


If you do nothing we will assume that you are happy with these changes and create a Summary Care Record for you. Children under 16 will automatically have a Summary Care Record created for them unless their parent or guardian chooses to opt them out. If you are the parent or guardian of a child under 16 and feel that they are old enough to understand, then you should make this information available to them.
