Named Accountable GP
We have allocated a named accountable GP for everyone at the surgery in accordance with NHS General Medical Services guidance.
This does not mean that you will only be able to see one particular doctor when attending the surgery, you are still free to see any doctor as you prefer.
The ‘named accountable GP’ has the lead responsibility for ensuring the coordination of your care. In practical terms this responsibility is shared by the GP team – so for example, a GP other than your ‘named GP’ might refer you to hospital and the resulting hospital correspondence would be principally addressed to them. Then of course, this correspondence would sit on your electronic file and could be picked-up by a different GP further along the line.
If you should like to know who you have been allocated to please ask anyone at the practice the next time that you happen to be here or are calling us for another purpose. Please do not make a special journey, or call the surgery just for this. If you should like to change your ‘named GP’ you are free to do this at any time.
Summary Care Record
A small portion of your electronic health record (prescribed medicines, contraindications and allergies) is shared across the NHS should it be needed in an emergency. This happens automatically unless you actively opt-out. You can do this simply by letting us know your wish – we will then switch off automatic uploads from your record held at the surgery.
Medical Interoperability Gateway (MIG)
Whilst the ‘Summary Care Record’ (SCR) system makes a very small portion of your medical record available across the whole NHS (and can be viewed by a range of staff in an emergency), the MIG shares a much fuller view of your records but only with local NHS providers – and only when you give explicit consent to a doctor or nurse at the point of care. This local scheme is administered by our local I.T. Service Commissioners who have produced a poster and factsheet to inform you of these processes. If you should like to opt-out of the MIG entirely please let us know and we will add a code to your notes that will prevent any data uploads.
