Please call the surgery phone number - 838355 - for instructions if you need care whilst the surgery is closed.

NHS 111 is a new service to make it easier for you to access local NHS healthcare services. You can call 111 when you need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergency.

NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.

Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.


  

New Telephone System

We know that it has often been difficult to get through to the surgery on the telephone. Since April 2013 this has been due to technical changes and faults which we have been trying to solve with BT to provide a better service for you. BT were not able to resolve the problems so it was decided to replace their phone system for a completely new one.

The system went active on 25th November. There will still be some issues to iron out, but we hope that you will start to experience improvements. Please bear with us as we get used to the system.

We apologise for the problems patients have experienced getting through to the surgery over the past months.


 

Friends and Family Test

From the 1st December 2014 all GP practices are required to ask patients the Friends & Family test questions that will be monitored by NHS England on a monthly basis. The two questions are as follows:

  • How likely are you to recommend our GP Surgery to friends and family if they need similar care or treatment?

  • Can you tell us why you gave that response?

 

Flu Vaccination Clinics

You are eligible to receive a free flu jab if you:

  • are 65 years of age or over
  • are pregnant
  • have certain medical conditions including COPD, asthma, heart disease, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, etc
  • are living in a long-stay residential care home or other long-stay care facility
  • receive a carer's allowance, or you are the main carer for an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if you fall ill

Letters will be sent out inviting children to specific clinics.

If you attend and are not eligible under the current guidelines, you will be refused due to supply shortages. 


 

Summary Care Records

Summary Care Records are held centrally and contain information about patient medication, allergies and adverse reactions to medicines, enabling healthcare staff treating patients out of hours or in an emergency to access key clinical information.

 SCR_Information_Leaflet_2.pdf

We go live with SCR on 20th November 2014.

The Government's policy is that everyone's records will be included unless a patient specifically opts out. If you wish to opt out, please use the form below, or ask at Reception for a copy.

New Clinical System for Brook Medical Centre

The clinical system that records all of your consultations, tests, and medication was over twenty years old. It was out-of-date and needed to be replaced. The new system was installed on Thursday 31st July and is called EMIS Web.

EMIS Web has many more functions that will help us to continue to improve your health care.

We piloted booking appointments online for a flu clinic, and plan to extend this to other clinics in the next few months.

We would like to thank you for your patience during the changeover period.
