Noticeboard

We are still here for you - if you need to see a doctor or nurse please call and we will offer a phone consultation to discuss and if appropriate we can bring you in to a safe environment.  We have 15 or 30 minute appointment slots where we meet you at the door and take your temperature and ask about your health; you are then directed straight in to a clean room with the Dr or Nurse who will see you and then let you out of a separate exit door so as not to meet the next patient coming in.  The room is then cleaned down in preparation for the next patient attending who goes through the same process.  We do ask you NOT TO COME EARLY OR LATE to allow for cleaning and preparation and do not come in if you do not have an appointment booked by phone.


The whole healthcare family here at Martins Oak would like to say a big THANK YOU to all our lovely patients for your kindness, understanding and outpourings of support for us and all NHS / Care workers in this time of crisis. We really appreciate all your kind words and deeds.


 

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?
