Noticeboard

Out of Hours

Your GP out-of-hours services are the responsibility of the Clinical Commissioning Group. If you or your family need urgent medical care when the surgery is closed, please phone 111 for the out-of-hours services.

Home Visits

If possible please try to telephone reception before 10am if you require a home visit. A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to see a nurse, or indeed arrange a hospital attendance.

 

Urgent Appointments

If you have a problem which you feel needs attention urgently on the same day and cannot await a routine consultation, please phone the Receptionist, who will take your details and ask a clinician to phone you back, and they will then deal with your problem in the most appropriate manner.

Information sharing

SHARING YOUR INFORMATION WITH OTHER LOCAL HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS

From time to time it is helpful for us to be able to share information about your health and care requirements with other health organisations that are responsible for providing you with healthcare. Across Nottinghamshire we are introducing a new system called MIG (Medical Interoperability Gateway) which will enable us to make relevant medical information from your GP record available to other healthcare professionals who are providing you with direct care. The MIG allows for relevant information to be viewed by other healthcare professionals, however before your information is accessed you will be asked for your explicit consent. Examples of organisations that may access your GP health information include NEMS Out of Hours team, walk in centres and local A&E departments. 

Sharing of information in this way is designed to ensure that the healthcare professionals looking after you have the most relevant information to enable them to provide you with the most appropriate care.  The type of information shared is restricted and includes a summary of current problems, current medication, allergies, recent tests, diagnosis, procedures, investigations, risks and warnings – all this information is currently held in your GP system record.

We have automatically set up the sharing facility to allow your information to be made available via the MIG. Whenever a clinician from another healthcare organisation wishes to view your GP information via the MIG they will always seek your permission before doing so; if you say “NO” they will not be able to see any information and no data will be made viewable via the MIG. 

If you have any concerns about the sharing of your information or do not want your information being made available via the MIG please speak to your practice who can advise accordingly.
