Coronavirus Update

We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means you must:
▪️ only meet in groups of up to six people in any setting (indoors or outdoors) and you must socially distance from people you do not live with
▪️ wear a face covering where required, unless you are exempt
▪️ wash your hands frequently
▪️ provide full and accurate details of everyone in your group when visiting a café, pub or restaurant as part of the NHS Test and Trace Service
▪️ stick to the full guidance around car sharing
▪️ self-isolate immediately if symptoms appear and book a free test by calling 119 or visiting the NHS COVID-19 tests webpage.

Evening and Weekend Appointments

Evening and Weekend GP appointments now available - Weekday evenings between 6.30pm & 8pm and on Saturday mornings - Please note that the appointment may not take place at your usual GP surgery but at another surgery nearby. We will be able to provide you with more information about the location at the time of booking.

Information Sharing

From time to time it is helpful for us to be able to share information about your health and care requirements with other health organisations that are responsible for providing you with healthcare.  Across Nottinghamshire we are introducing a new system called MIG (Medical Interoperability Gateway) which will enable us to share relevant medical information from your GP record with other healthcare professionals who are providing you with direct care. The MIG allows for relevant information to be viewed by other healthcare professionals, however before your information is accessed you will be asked for your explicit consent. Examples of organisations that may access your GP health information include CNCS Out of Hours team and local A&E departments. 

Sharing of information in this way is designed to ensure that the healthcare professionals looking after you have the most relevant information to enable them to provide you with the most appropriate care.  The type of information shared is restricted and includes a summary of current problems, current medication, allergies, recent tests, diagnosis, procedures, investigations, risks and warnings – all this information is currently held in your GP system record.

Whenever a clinician from another healthcare organisation wishes to view your GP information via the MIG they will always seek your permission before doing so; if you say “NO” they will not be able to see any information from your GP record during the episode of care.

If you have any concerns about the sharing of your information, or do not want your information being made available via the MIG, then please speak to your practice who can advise accordingly.
