Reminder - August Bank Holiday
The practice will be closed on Monday 27th August 2018 for the bank holiday
If you urgently need to see a GP over the bank holidays, call 111. The NHS 111 service can put you in contact with the GP out-of-hours service, which can arrange for you to see a healthcare professional during bank holidays, evenings and weekends.
If you need help fast but your health problem isn’t life threatening, the 111 service can help. It is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and is free to call from landlines and mobile phones. It includes a full range of local health services, including doctors, community nurses, emergency dental care and late opening chemists.
The Urgent Care Centre provides access to assessment and treatment if you need help with an urgent health problem. The service is open every day between 7am and 9pm at Seaton House, London Road, Nottingham NG2 4LA. This is a walk-in service and you do not need an appointment to attend.
If you need advice for minor health problems you can speak to your pharmacist for advice and over-the-counter treatments for a wide range of problems such as stomach upsets, coughs and colds.
You can also access information about health symptoms, conditions, medicines and treatments online via NHS Choices.

GP2GP Record Transfers
All GP practices are required to utilise the GP2GP facility for the transfer of patient Electronic Health Record (EHR) between practices, when a patient registers or de-registers. The facility allows for the records to be transferred faster and more secure than the current paper-based method. Sherrington Park Medical Centre are using this service to transfer records to other practices.
Patient Access to Medical Records
Patients now have the facility to view online, export and/or print any summary information from their records i.e. medications, allergies, adverse reactions and any additional information agreed between the GP and the patient. Please contact reception for further information.
Named GP for Patients aged 75 and Over
Sherrington Park Medical Practice already operates a personal list and patients are familiar with having a personal GP. The named GP has overall responsibility for the care and support that the surgery provides for them. The named GP will also work with other health and care professionals to ensure that those patients over 75 who are vulnerable and at risk of admission to hospital has a care plan which meets their individual needs.
