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.   

testsTest Results

If you have online access to your records you will be able to see test results without having to contact the surgery.

For those without online access, please ring the surgery between 9am and 1pm to obtain blood test results.  Most tests are available after 2 days but some tests take longer.  The receptionist can only give you the message attached to the result as authorised by the doctor.  They will not be able to discuss the results further.

Results can only be given to the patient who has had the tests done and only with the doctor’s approval.  If you have any queries about your results discuss them with the doctor via a telephone appointment. 

You do not need to come to see the doctor for test results unless we contact you and ask you to make an appointment.
