Statement of Intent - Patient Online: Records Access

This practice will be offering our patients the facility to view parts of their GP medical record online from 1st April 2016.

If you are not yet registered to use our online services, Patient Access, please come into the practice with photo ID and an account will be created for you.
The practice would like to know what patients think about online services, please send your feedback to bhccg.stanfordmedicalcentre@nhs.net

Electronic Prescription Service

What is the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)?
EPS is an NHS funded service in England. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the healthcare professional you choose to get your medicines or appliances from.
What does this mean for you?
If you currently collect your repeat prescriptions from your GP you will not have to visit your GP practice to pick up your paper prescription. Instead, your GP will send it electronically to the place you choose, saving you time.
You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop.
You may not have to wait as long at the pharmacy as there will be more time for your repeat
prescriptions to be prepared before you arrive.
For more information about EPS visit www.cfh.nhs.uk/eps, or ask your pharmacy or talk to us.

Prevent Suicide - Grassroots

Appointments

Routine appointments can be made with a Doctor or Nurse, usually within 1 or 2 days.
If you ring the surgery for a same day appointment you will probably speak to our Practice Nurse Jude who can give advice. The Practice Nurse also holds a surgery each morning in conjunction with the Doctor. If the nurse feels that you need an appointment with the Doctor, she will arrange for you to come to the surgery that day.

IF FOR ANY REASON YOU ARE UNABLE TO KEEP AN APPOINTMENT, DON’T FORGET TO RING AND LET US KNOW IN GOOD TIME.

Repeat Prescriptions

If you are on Regular Medication we can arrange for your Repeat Prescriptions to be picked up from a local Chemist. Please allow at least 5 working days for your prescription to be processed in this way.
Please request any prescription in writing or via our web Patient Access service.
We do not take requests by telephone.

Out of Hours

If you become unwell “Out of Hours”, the first point of contact for emergency medical advice is the NHS 111 service (call 111). You will be given advice from a Doctor and if appropriate, be asked to attend the Accident & Emergency Centre at the County Hospital.

Medical Certificates

If you are unwell and are absent from the University for more than 7 days, with a viral or flu type illness, you might be required to obtain a medical certificate from your GP, provided that you have made contact with them during your illness.

Holiday Periods

If you need to see a GP when your return home during your holidays, please ask to be seen as a Temporary Resident. Please do not register as a permanent patient elsewhere, as you will need to complete the registration process with us again on your return to University.

Sexual Health

Our GPs and Practice Nurse are all available to provide routine advice regarding your sexual health and contraception. We also provide Coil and implant fittings, Chlamydia screening and Emergency Contraception Services should you require them.
For more information about Chlamydia screening please visit the “Have you got it” website.

Travel Advice

Our Practice Nurses are also available to provide you with health advice for your overseas holiday. In addition to giving you advice about vaccinations, they will also talk to you about how to stay healthy when abroad, particularly when traveling to third world countries. In some instances where the vaccinations are not provided through the NHS, we will need to refer you to a local travel clinic.
Please seek advice at least 6 weeks before traveling.

Travel Medicals

Some students obtain work overseas during the long vacation. Organisations such as Camp America and CCUSA ask for a Medical Questionnaire and occasionally a Medical Examination. This service is over and above what is provided through the NHS and a charge will be made (please contact the Surgery for up to date charges).
We will need at least 10 working days to organise the completion of these forms and any examination that may be required.

Opening times

Term time 8.30 – 11.30 Monday to Friday
Outside term time you will be seen at our Main surgery 175 Preston Road BN1 6AG
