RACE TO THE PYRAMIDS

We have extremely big hearted GPs, though a little wacky!!!  Three of them have very kindly decided to raise money for Eastwood Memory Cafe with a totally amazing challenge.  I would be really grateful if you could share this with anyone and everyone you know, so we can hopefully reach the target set. 

 

Please see the following link:

 

https://mydonate.bt.com/events/racetothepyramids/461236

 

In order to support the amazing work of Eastwood Memory Cafe; we have set ourselves the challenge of collectively running the equivalent distance of Eastwood to The Pyramids of Giza, 2200 miles, by the end of 2018 and would love to raise the same number in £s - £2200!!!

Please support this fabulous charity which makes such a difference to those affected by dementia in our local area.

Feel free to keep nagging us to get those running miles in. We will give monthly updates with progress toward our target!

Dr Atkinson, Dr Scullard and Dr Homer
 
 


 

registerRegistration With the Practice

When you register, we require you to complete a registration form and a medical questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records. The form may be printed off from the website.  Please click on the link below.  Please fill this out and bring it in with you on your first visit to the practice.  We will ask you to also complete other new patient registration forms when you come to the practice, which include sharing information consent, online registration forms.  Please be prepared to complete other forms when you attend.

New Patients

New patient registration forms can be printed off from this website. Complete and sign these and bring them into the surgery to register with the surgery. We will require sight of your ID, so please also bring photographic and address ID for the surgery to copy for your medical records.

Patients Moving To an Area Outside Of Our Catchment Area

It is the practice policy that if patients that are registered at the practice move from living within the practice area to outside the practice area they will be de-registered from our practice list on the grounds that the patient has moved out of our area. It is the patients responsibility to re-register at a new GP surgery in the area where they are now living in order to receive continuing care.

Transferring Your Electronic Health Record

Your GP practice holds copies of your patient health record electronically and in paper format.  Both contain the healthcare information about you that your GP needs including your medical history, medications, allergies, immunisations and vaccinations.  If you have previously registered with a different GP in England, upon registering at this practice your electronic health record will, where possible, be transferred automatically from your previous GP practice through the use of an NHS system called GP2GP. Please click on the link below for full information and a leaflet should you wish to print this off.
