Medical Records Information

Medical Records - Change of address notification

Please let us know if you have moved.  It may be more convenient for you to change GP/practice, check with new neighbours for recommendations.  You can also check NHS Choices to find your nearest GP.

When notifying us of a change of address and are staying with us, please include the following for each member of the family moving with you:

  • Title, firstname, surname and previous surname if appropriate
  • Date of Birth
  • NHS number (if you know it - see your medical card. Note, it is not the same as your NI number)
  • New address in full
  • New telephone number(s) including mobile (let us know if you are happy to be contacted by SMS/text)
  • Email address (let us know if you are happy to be contacted by email)

If you are on regular medication you should have the right hand side of your prescription to show your new GP but if there are any problems get your new GP to telephone us.

Lastly, if you do move away from us, all the practice staff and doctors wish you well for you and your family in the future.

 

Your NHS Number

Your NHS Number - Your healthcare, your record, your number

Everyone registered with the NHS in England and Wales has their own unique number. Your NHS Number helps healthcare staff to find your health records.

Keep a record of your NHS Number safe.

You may have an old medical card, with the old-style NHS Number made up of both letters and numbers. This is replaced, for all patients, by a new NHS Number made up entirely of numbers (in a 3-3-4 format). You will need proof of ID (such as a driving licence or passport) to retrieve your NHS Number from us. Please ask at reception.

Summary Care Records

Summary Care Records (SCRs)

The NHS is changing how patient information is stored and shared in England, to provide better care for patients. SCRs provide healthcare staff treating patients in an emergency or out-of-hours with faster access to key clinical information.

The Summary Care Record is a copy of key information from your GP record. It provides authorised healthcare staff with faster, secure access to essential information about you when you need unplanned care or when your GP practice is closed.

Summary Care Records improve the safety and quality of your care.

Read more about SCR on NHS Digital and sharing your records on NHS Choices.
