Due to Covid-19 we are operating a restricted entry system, there is a door bell to press to obtain entry for appointments only. Patients who have an appointment will have their temperature taken before being allowed to enter.
During the Covid19 Pandemic our GP's are warning against the use of Ibuprofen or Nurofen for pain or fever as patients on these have had a worse outcome in Italy as per a Lancet Research article. Our advice is to use Paracetamol only to control any fever or pain. Please also note Codeine also supresses breathing. All our patients have access to telephone advice during office hours, please ring if you need advice.

All health organisations must, by law, share information with each other about patients they are caring for directly, to improve the care provided. They must also use a patient's NHS number as a consistent identifier when sharing data or information about them. This was set out in the Health and Social Care (Safety and Quality) Act 2015, which aimed to reduce anxiety about data sharing. The 2013 Caldicott Review found that in some cases this anxiety meant patient information was not shared, even when sharing would have been in the best interest of the patient.
NHS Digital have produced guidance to help put these duties into practice, so that patients receive the best possible care, while their information is protected.
At our practice we use a computer system called SystmOne. This computer system is used by various different health organisations, enabling them to view patients records for patients who under their care. Our patients have a choice whether these organisations (which use the same system as ours) can view their GP Health Record. Ultimately the choice is the patients. Patients can choose to not share their records with these other health care organisations who are involved in their care if they wish. Our advise would be to share, as this will result in better / safer clinical care.
As a practice we will share records to other organisations who care for you, if you have not set any preferences with us, as we are only sharing to those health organisations who look after our patients.
