Noticeboard

We are now able to send appointment reminders to your mobile phone.  Please update your mobile number when you next visit the surgery.


We are now accepting new patient registrations at the practice.


We have acquired the services of two new salaried GP's at the practice;
Dr Victoria Carradice MB ChB 2006 & Dr Sreelatha Vengala MB BS 2003,
Who will be starting at the practice in April 2017.


NOTICE
Can all patients registered at Cottingham Medical Centre please read the "PRACTICE NEWS" page under the "Further Information" column on the right-hand side of this page concerning changes to the practice in the very near future.


Please be patient with our reception staff who are trying to do their best in this very challenging period for Cottingham Medical Centre

Dr. Kieran and partners are actively trying to recruit new young Doctors to join our team following the retirement of Dr. Morgan and the resignation of Dr. George.  Unfortunately we are having to use more locum GP's to help us manage the ever incresing workload and this understandably puts a strain on everyone.

Our receptionists will always endeavour to find you an appointment which is convenient for you but unfortunately it may not be with the Doctor of your choice.

If you could bear with us the situation will hopefully get better in the not too distant future.

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.
