Important Update to Old Trafford Medical Practice:

On Thursday 12th July we will be changing our clinical system from TPP SystmOne to Emis. From Thursday 5th July we will switch off our access to online services such as online appointment booking and online requests for prescriptions. 

No prescriptions will be issued on Thursday 12th July. Please ensure you allow for this when ordering your medications.

All prescriptions will be paper prescriptions from the period Thursday 5th July until at least our go live day of Thursday 12th July.

On Thursday 12th July we will close at 1pm and re-open on Friday 13th July at 8am. 

On the morning of Thursday 12th July we will only be offering same day appointments.

Our team will have received full training for this new system, however your patience would be gratefully appreciated during this transitional period.

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.
