Did you know you can now book to see a GP in Tameside at evenings and weekend? There will be additional appointments available 6.30pm-8.00pm weekdays and 9am - 12pm weekends. Appointments must be booked in advance. Please speak to the receptionist to book an appointment or for more information.

Patient Participation Group

We now run a Patient Participation Group at the Practice.

If you have time to give and would be interested in the involvement of improving our Services, then we would like to hear from you.

Please leave your details with one of our receptionists and we will get back to you in due course.

If you would like further information, please contact the surgery and speak to the manager Stacy Macleod or our PPG lead Samantha Fagan.

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.
