Welcome to the new website for Cricklade Surgery
Hello and welcome to our website. We’ve packed it full of useful information in a very easy to use format with the added benefit of several online functions. If you’re new to the area, have a look at our opening times, download a registration form and come and see us.
Named GP - You may be aware all practices are required to provide their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that the surgery provides to them. As one of our patients, Dr de Silva will be your named GP. This does not prevent you from seeing any other GP in the practice.
Please note that the surgery may contact you by text or email so please ensure that your details with us are up to date. Should you not wish us to contact you in this way then please advise Reception.
Your health record and sharing of information - Your health record includes your medical history, details about your medication and any allergies you may have. At a time of emergency or crisis it's important that clinicians can securely access your recent medical history so that they can understand the best way to help you. They may have to give access to other NHS organisations. This means that if you need to see an out of hours doctor or require treatment at an acute hospital for example, your health records can be quickly and easily accessed by clincians to help tailor the medical support you need. Your information will only be shared with other healthcare services if you give your explicit consent. You will only be asked to share your medical information if the clinician feels it will benefit your care. If you don't want a clinician from another healthcare service to be able to view your health record you can say so at the the point at which the clinician asks you. If you wish to opt out please ask reception for an opt-out form, once completed we will record your preference in our computer system.
