ENRICHED SUMMARY CARE RECORD  (ESCR)

Most patients have a summary care record which shares important information between healthcare professionals such as medication, allergies and adverse reactions which is extremely useful if you are seen by another doctor other than  your own GP including hospital admissions.   There is now the enriched SCR which also includes important medical history and procedures, immunisations and anticipatory care information such as your wishes for emergency care or end of life plans.   This ESCR will be especially helpful when treating patients with urgent medical needs such as hospitals or by out of hours doctors.  It also saves  you having to try to remember what conditions you have plus any allergies and medications you take, especially important for elderly patients who may not remember as well as they used to.     

If you would like to have an ESCR, please let  us know and we will tick the box in your records. You may also be asked this question by our doctors or reception team in the future.   

Some of the practices in the north host late night GP surgeries from 6.30pm until 8pm and on Saturday mornings from 8am - 12 noon.  These are aimed at people who find it difficult to attend their GP surgery during normal surgery hours because of work commitments or transport difficulties.

The clinics are open to patients of Glendale Surgery, Belford Surgery, Well Close Square Medical Group, Union Brae Practice and Cheviot Medical Group.  Some of the practices also have practice nurses or healthcare assistants holding clinics at the same time.  The surgeries will be held as follows:

Monday          Well Close Square Medical Group, Berwick upon Tweed

Tuesday         Belford Surgery, Belford

Wednesday    Well Close Square Medical Group, Berwick upon Tweed

Thursday       Glendale Surgery, Wooler

Friday            Alnwick Medical Group, Alnwick

Saturday        Well Close Square Medical Group, Berwick upon Tweed

To book an appointment at one of these clinics, please contact your own surgery who will have access to the appointment system.

There are also clinics held on a Sunday morning with 3 slots being available at 10.10am, 10.30am and 10.50am at Alnwick and Berwick which is run by the GP out of hours service.  To book one of these appointments, if available, please contact the surgery who will book the appointment for you.
