How to access your GP

New Shared Care Record delivering better, safer care for all our patients.

We wanted to let you know that we are finally connecting our systems to offer joined-up health and care records, which will enable better, safer care and treatment for all our patients. As a GP, it is difficult to provide joined-up care with so many separate systems for handling patient information. These were not connected, meaning that you often had to repeat your story each time you received care at a different organisation, or with a different health professional. The Shared Care Record means up-to-date records will be immediately available to professionals caring for you as a patient, when you need direct care. It will mean, for instance, a doctor in a hospital, or a paramedic who attends a 999 call will be able to confidentially access the same crucial information that we can at the Practice, such as details of any allergies and current medications, bringing potentially life-saving benefits. Robust security measures are in place to protect your health information and all staff must follow the law on keeping your information confidential. The Shared Care Record is not the same as the General Practice Data for Planning and Research Directions (GPDPR), which is a national NHS Digital initiative to use GP practice data for research and planning purposes. The Shared Care Record is a local initiative to share information with organisations directly involved in your care to ensure that you receive prompt and appropriate treatment when you need it.

Please note we can not accept letters or prescription requests in person. You can email us at rbccg.winyateshc@nhs.net or post to us. Prescription requests can be made online, by phone or via your usual pharmacy. We apologise for any inconvenience.

 

Thankyou

You can still book routine telephone appointments and order your prescriptions - these will be sent electronically to a pharmacy of your choice. Routine sick notes and paper documents will also be sent to you electronically or by post.

Healthcare Navigators

The new way to be seen.
From the 1st November 2017, you may have noticed a change when you ask for an appointment. You may now speak to a 'Healthcare Navigator' who is trained to offer you an appointment with the most appropriate person depending on your need and urgency.

They may ask you a couple of questions in order to navigate you to the person best suited to help you. The Healthcare Navigator is not being nosey, nor will they make any clinical decisions, they have been trained to help you get the most appropriate care, from the most appropriate person.
Healthcare Navigators, like all members of the team, are bound by the same confidentiality rules.
Thank you for your support.

IMPORTANT

We are now making more use of email and texts to contact patients rather than just letters by post. It is therefore vital that patients ensure they keep us up-to-date if they change their mobile number or email address.

Keeping your contact details up-to-date is now easier than ever. Simply use the "Your Contact Details" button at the bottom of this page, and complete the form.
Alternatively, you can also let us know using Patient Access (online services) by clicking "Update your details".

We will only use your details to contact you about matters directly relating to your care or to inform you of new services aimed at improving the healthcare you receive from us. No confidential information is ever sent via text or email.
