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.   

Health checks (well man/well woman)

If you are concerned about any aspect of your health and would like a well man/well woman check, please contact the surgery and ask for an appointment with the Practice Nurse or Health Care Assistant.   You will be informed of the results and, if required, offered a further appointment with the doctor to discuss the results.

NHS Health Checks 40-74 years

You are eligible to have an NHS health check every 5 years.  You will normally be called up for this but please feel free to ask for a health check if you are worried about your general health.   You will be informed of the results and, if required, offered a further appointment with the doctor to discuss the results.

Health Checks 75 years and over

All patients over 75 are eligible to an annual health check to improve early diagnosis and health screening.  Please make an appointment to attend the surgery to see our Practice Nurse or Health Care Assistant.   You will be informed of the results and, if required, offered a further appointment with the doctor to discuss the results. 

If you have a chronic disease, you will already be having an annual review so do not need a separate health check.
