This is a form stating whether you agree or not to share your detailed medical record with other health professionals who may need to provide treatment for you. More information is available here Information Leaflet on sharing your record
** Summary Care Record for Emergency Care
A Summary Care Record 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. If you wish it can also contain additional information about your health.
Having this information stored in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when your GP practice is closed. For more information on the NHS Summary Care Records, see the attached information sheet Summary Care Record Information Sheet or go to the website at: http://www.nhscarerecords.nhs.uk
If you change your phone number, address or name please let us know as soon as possible, so that we can update your records. This is important, especially if we need to contact you.
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.
A Patient Guide to GP Services
These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups. Open the leaflets in one of the following languages
If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
