HELP US TO HELP YOU!

We often experience a high demand for our services, particularly in the mornings, and especially on Mondays. We would very much appreciate your assistance in trying to manage this and help to free the telphone lines for other important matters. If you need to order a prescription please try to avoid ringing in the mornings, escpecially on a Monday.

We have a dedicated prescription line (01432 265269) which is available 9am - 1pm & 2pm - 4pm Monday to Friday. You may also wish to consider one of the following alternative ways to order your repeat prescriptions: 

1. Order on-line using the link above to online services 

2. Complete the right hand side of your prescription and deposit it in the wall mounted prescription box at the surgery.

Please remember to allow 2 working days before collecting your prescription.

Thank you for your assistance.

 

 

Online Access for Patients

Online Access

With Patient Access, you can now access some of our services at home. work or on the move - wherever you can connect to the internet. What's more, because Patient Access is a 24 hour online service you can do this in your own time, day or night. Patient Access is also available on an app on android and iOS.

Belmont Medical Centre offers patients the facility to book appointments, order repeat prescriptions and send secure non-urgent messages to the practice using Patient Access. Patients registered for on line services can also request access to their medical records.  This allows patients to view, export and print any summary information from their records relating to medications, allergies and adverse reactions and immunisations. 

If you are not already registered for online access, you will need to visit the surgery to register, bringing with you some personal identification, such as passport, driving licence or utility bill. Once registered you will be given an instruction leaflet with a unique username and password.

Summary Care Record - Statement of Intent

It is important that your medical record is available when and where you need it. You may feel, especially if you have an extensive medical history, that it is important for some of your medical information to be available if, for example, you were on holiday away from the practice area and taken ill. Having your Summary Care Record (SCR) available will help anyone treating you without your full medical record. They will have access to information about any medication you may be taking and any drugs that you have a recorded allergy or sensitivity to. The system in use at Belmont Medical Centre means that your SCR is automatically updated, on at least a daily basis, to ensure that your information is as up to date as it can be. Of course, if you do not want your medical records available in this way, please contact us so that we can update your record to this effect. We will add a code that excludes your records being shared via SCR.

Your medical records when leaving the practice (GP2GP)

It is very important that you are registered with a doctor near to where you live. We encourage patients to do this as soon as possible if they move out of the practice area. Once you have registered with a new GP, your medical records will be forwarded on to them via NHS England.

NHS England requires all practices to use electronic transfer of patient records (GP2GP) between practices when a patient registers or de-registers from our Practice or have published plans in place to achieve this by 31 st   of March 2015.

Belmont Medical Centre already uses GP2GP to transfer patient records electronically, unless there is an issue with the receiving practice's computer system that does not allow the transfer. This means that your electronic medical record will be available to your new GP as soon as they register you at the practice.
