CORONA VIRUS UPDATE- 16th March 2020

As of Monday 16th March all patients will be offered a telephone triage appointment with a GP or ANP. No initial face to face appointments will be offered unless the triaging clinician considers it necessary.


Please do not request for more than your usual supply of medication. Stock piling of medication may put a strain on the supply chain and exacerbate any potential shortages.  All prescription requests will be sent electronically to avoid unnecessary visits to the practice. 

Lastly, thank you for your patience and understanding. Please do not telephone the practice unless it is absolutely essential. We are experiencing a high volume of calls and the reception team are under extreme pressure. 

Please check back for further updates.

Medical Records

Lancashire and South Cumbria has been chosen by NHS England to be a national pilot for the digitisation of Medical Records. Scanning these paper based records and making them digital will enable better utilisation of space, creating more clinical space, staff areas, multi team space and video hubs, removing the need for some practices to build extension. In additional it will also make your record more easily and speedily accessible to clinical staff within your practice. 

Your complete GP medical record will be digital and stored in a secure cloud based clinical system (only accessible by your GP practice) with the paper based records being securely destroyed following BS EN 15713:2009 Secure destruction of confidential material. Your GP will still be able to access your records easily within this system. The scanning and destruction of the paper records will follow strict data protection guidelines adhered to by the NHS. As with paper records, digital records are stored for the duration specified in the Records Management Codes of Practice for Health and Social Care. For GP patient records, this states that they may be destroyed 10 years after the patients death if they are no longer needed. 

If you wish to discuss the scheme, please inform the Practice direct either by letter or via e-mail
