Noticeboard

Please do not come into the surgery unless you have a pre-booked appointment.

We are offering telephone consultations which must be booked via the Doctorlink symptom checker below. If, after the call, the Doctor needs to see you, they will book you for a face to face appointment. We have now moved to our new clinical system, if you require log in details please e-mail swlccg.twickenhamparksurgery@nhs.net to request.

Please continue to complete the “Doctorlink” symptom checker below to access the GP and continue to email us with either:

Prescription request: swlccg.tpsprescriptions@nhs.net

All other queries: swlccg.twickenhamparksurgery@nhs.net

We will endeavour to be back to normal as soon as possible, and would like to thank you for your patience and understanding with these improvements which will benefit you as well as the practice.

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.
