COVID VACS UPDATE


PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ATTEND YOUR SECOND VACCINE APPOINTMENTS. WE HAVE HAD A LOT OF DNA'S AND WE DO NOT WANT WASTED VACCINES.  WE CAN NOT GUARANTEE YOU WILL GET A SECOND VACCINE IF YOU DO NOT ATTEND YOUR BOOKED APPOINTMENT.


NHSE are now inviting patients 18 and over to attend Central Birmingham Millenium Point Mass vaccination centre and others, this is an alternative to  your local PCN run clinics, but if you wish to book and attend the Birmingham Clinics please follow the instructions on the letter when you receive it or visit www.nhs.uk/conditions.coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccine/ 


The surgery and local PCN are continuing to do 2nd vaccines and when vaccines are available 1st vaccines too.


If you have a mobile telephone number that you are happy for us to identify as your preferred method of contact (we can then send you text invitations / messages which saves time in getting messages to you) please let us know by texting the words "sms consent" to 07756525536 with your full name, we will then amend your records. Thank you



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.
