PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS

We will no longer be accepting prescription requests over the telephone. You can order via the Rotherham NHS App or Systmonline. You must order directly from the surgery unless you have access to above.

Flu vaccination programme update

Recent government announcement on flu vaccinations for Well people aged 50-64 has raised some questions amongst our patients.  The government has advised that they will provide further guidance to the practice and the public, closer to the proposed vaccination programme date, which will be sometime in November and December for this group of patients.  

However, someone aged 50-64 years old, who has a health condition that needs early vaccination will be invited by the practice to attend earlier.

Summary Care Record

There is a new Central NHS Computer System called the Summary Care Record (SCR). It is an electronic record which contains information about the medicines you take, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had.

 

Why do I need a Summary Care Record?

Storing information in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when your GP practice is closed.

This information could make a difference to how a doctor decides to care for you, for example which medicines they choose to prescribe for you.

Who can see it?

Only healthcare staff involved in your care can see your Summary Care Record. 

 

How do I know if I have one?

Over half of the population of England now have a Summary Care Record. You can find out whether Summary Care Records have come to your area by looking at our interactive map or by asking your GP

Do I have to have one?

No, it is not compulsory. If you choose to opt out of the scheme, then you will need to complete a form and bring it along to the surgery. You can use the form at the foot of this page.
