Noticeboard

From 1st August 2019, we will no longer be able to receive or send faxes.

We are currently working jointly with Park House Surgery in Bagshot to provide doctor and nurse appointments in the evenings on a rota basis.  Appointments are available Monday to Friday until 8pm and are available to patients of the 2 Surgeries.  From 1st october 2018 additional weekend appointments will be available at designated practices throughout Surrey Heath.  Please click here for more information.

Lightwater Surgery was given an overall rating of Good for our CQC inspection in December 2018.

We encourage patients to register for our online services.  This will allow patients to book appointments as well as order repeat prescriptions without having to wait on the phone to speak to the next available recpetionist.  Additionally, patients are able to view aspects of their clinical record and any recent blood test results.  Online services are available 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

NHS App

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.
