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.   

pillsMedicines Delivery Service

We deliver medicines to outlets in Milfield, Lowick, Chatton, Cornhill and Powburn normally by 5pm on a Thursday.   To take advantage of this free service and to ensure delivery, orders must be in by 12 noon on Monday at the latest   (remember you can order repeat medication up to 10 days in advance).  Please tell the receptionist that you would like your medicine to be delivered each time you order.

This service is not offered or paid for by the NHS.  It’s offered only by the generosity of our staff who deliver the medication for you on their way home.  We are therefore unable to offer this service when staff are on holiday or sick leave but will let you know when you order your medication.  We may also be unable to offer the service during periods of inclement weather if the roads are unsafe.
