Named Accountable GP
The NHS standard contract for 2015/16 requires that all patients, including children, are allocated a named, accountable GP. The named, accountable GP will have overall responsibility for the care and support that the practice provides for you. This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice as you currently do.
If you would like to know who your named GP is please contact reception.

Change of Telephone Number
It is very important that you let us know if you change your telephone number.
You can do this by completing:
* the on line change of details form at the foot of this page
* the change of details form available from reception

Alternatively you can include the details on your repeat prescription request.

GP Registrars
As you may be aware the Heron Practice is a teaching practice.
We currently have Drs Jane Miles and Aliya Mustapha undertaking their "in service" placements with us. 



Summary Care Record

NHS England are introducing a new electronic record called the Summary Care Record (SCR) which will be used to support your emergency care.

The SCR will give healthcare staff faster, easier access to essential information about you. This will help them to provide you with safe treatment in an emergency or when your GP practice is closed.

You can choose to have a Summary Care Record:

You do not need to do anything. This will happen automatically.

Healthcare staff will ask your permission every time they look at your SCR.

You can choose not to have a Summary Care Record:

If you do not want an SCR, you need to let us know by filling in and returning an opt-out form to reception.

A printable copy of this form can be found on the link below, alternatively it can be collected from reception.
