Dr Hugh Dawson
Lensfield Medical Practice is deeply saddened to inform you that Dr Hugh Dawson passed away on Saturday 13th February 2016.
Dr Dawson was a much loved colleague, friend and Doctor. This is truly a great loss to our Practice and to our community as a whole. He will be profoundly missed by everyone whose lives he touched.
Online Access to Summary Care Records
If you wish, you can now use the internet to book appointments with a GP, request repeat prescriptions for any medications you take regularly and look at a summary of your medical record online. You can also still use the telephone or call in to the surgery for any of these services as well. It's your choice.
Being able to see your summary care record online might help you to manage your medical conditions. If you decide not to join or wish to withdraw, this is your choice and practice staff will continue to treat you in the same way as before. This decision will not affect the quality of your care.
For further information on how to register for these services, please speak to our reception team who will be happy to guide you through the process. Please note you will be required to provide 1 form of identification to enable this service.
Access to detailed Medical Records
It is a contractual requirement for practices to enable patients to have online access to a more detailed version of their medical record (rather than the ‘Patient Summary’ version currently available online) by the 31st March 2016. Lensfield Medical Practice are pleased to advise you that this function is now available.
In order to activate this functionality please come in to the practice to complete the relevant form and provide the required ID.
Safeguards have been negotiated in implementing expanded records access. The practice will not be allowing access to detailed coded records to any patient under 16 years of age. There are circumstances where a GP may believe it is not in the best interests of the patient to share all information in the record, for example where it could cause harm to their physical or mental health. GP medical records software will be configured to offer coded data, but GPs will be provided with the tools to withhold coded information where they judge it to be in the patient's interests or where there is reference to a third party.
For our policy on detailed coded records please click the link below.
