Noticeboard

IMPORTANT:  If you are asked to attend the surgery for a face to face appointment, please arrive wearing a mask or face covering (i.e. a scarf).  This is only optional for children under the age of 5.  We need to retain our surgical face masks for clinical staff as much as possible, so are grateful for our patients for abiding by this request.

My Care Record:  Privacy Notice – Coronavirus (Covid-19) Response Addendum.  This notice describes how we may use your information to protect you and others during the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, and it supplements our main Privacy Notice (Fair Processing Notice).  More information available here.

CORONAVIRUS: DO NOT WALK INTO THE SURGERY UNLESS YOU HAVE BEEN ASKED TO DO SO BY A MEMBER OF STAFF. THIS IS TO PROTECT OUR STAFF AND OTHERS

On line booking:  Please note that we have suspended all on-line appointment booking for the time being.  This is because on-line booking does not allow for triage/screening of appointments, so this has been necessary to safeguard both our patients and our staff.  Please accept our apologies for any difficulty this creates.

Repeat Prescriptions:  From 1st April 2020 you will no longer be able to order your repeat prescriptions from your local pharmacy or via another third party.  Requests for repeat medication should be made direct to the surgery via any of the following options:

Please do speak to a member of the reception team if you have any queries regarding this change.

Sharing Full Electronic Clinical Record

Please take the time to consider sharing your full electronic clinical record.

Sharing your clinical record improves communications and referrals with other community service providers that use the same computer system as us (SystmOne). This includes district nurses/phlebotomy/physio/community clinics etc.

Your record will only be readily available to those involved in your direct care and who have a need to see it -other SystmOne services who have not received a direct referral would still need to ask you for your consent to access your records.

By sharing your record with these services it enables those health professionals to have a full picture of your current health and needs without the need to ‘start again’.

You can change your mind at any point regarding sharing your record – just notify us. Your record will only be shared by Beauchamp House Surgery with your explicit verbal or written consent.

For more information from the clinical system supplier please see the TPP ‘Your electronic patient record & the sharing of information – A patient’s guide’ leaflet below.

Your electronic patient record & the sharing of information

Please complete the consent form below if you wish to share your records and either hand in at the reception desk, post or email to beauchamphouseadmin@nhs.net
