CORONAVIRUS: Latest situation in the surgery

During this uncertain time we have put in the following measures and ask you follow these instructions to try and keep the surgery as safe as we possibly can.

 Please DO NOT come to the surgery unless you have been asked to attend.

💊 If you require a prescription and have access to the internet, please request your prescription via email (ibstockhouse@nhs.net), SystmOnline or the NHSapp.
If you, or someone you know does not have internet access we have an external letterbox to the front of the building (to the left of the front door). Alternatively we can take your request over the telephone.
Please remember to include your name and date of birth on any written request.

📞📱All doctor and nurse appointments where possible will be conducted via telephone call. It would be helpful during this time for our patients to purchase:
 A home blood pressure machine (these are around £15)
⚖️ A set of weighing scales

📞📱Please only contact the surgery via telephone during this time if it is urgent as we are receiving a large increase in telephone calls to the surgery. Where possible please contact us by email

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our patients for your continued support and cooperation during this time.

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.
