We prefer to register whole families as it assists better medical care.
If you are currently homeless , or of no fixed abode, or cannot supply any identification for any reason, we can register you at the surgery address, so please don't be afraid to tell our staff.
If you scored 5 or more on the Audit-C above, it would be helpful for you to complete this more detailed Audit-10 questionnaire to see if you are drinking safely or need to cut down. Send it to us and we can discuss with you whether any tests or advice are needed.
SUMMARY CARE RECORD
The Summary Care Record is automatically created and contains some basic information including regular medication and allergies and adverse medication reactions. You can OPT OUT of sharing your Summary Care Record with other health professionals (however this is very useful eg. if you are incapacitated after an accident)
You can EXPRESS CONSENT FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION to be added, such as signifiant illnesses, vaccinations, personal care preferences and next of kin.

OPTING OUT OF SHARING YOUR PERSONAL HEALTH INFORMATION
Essential personal health information is shared between healthcare professionals when giving you personal medical care. It is potentially dangerous to treat you without background information and this is why it is automatic. There are strict rules around this sharing (see our Medical Records page) and you will be asked if you are happy to share at the point of care.
However, you can OPT OUT of sharing your personal health data for research and planning ('secondary use') by completing this NHS web-form .
