TEXT MESSAGING ( posted on Oct 26, 2017 )

We have made some improvements to the way we send appointment text reminders. If we have your mobile telephone number, you will receive a text confirming your appointment 1 week before your appointment time.  You will also receive a reminder text 1 day before your appointment time. 


If you are unable to make this appointment you can reply with the word CANCEL - you will need to contact us or book online if you wish to re-arrange the time of your appointment. If you have a smart phone you can download a free app to make this easier. More information about the App can be found here


We are also able to send other information to you by text such as reminders about your flu jab, to book a blood test and so on. We hope that you will find this helpful.


If you are not happy to receive text messages from the Practice please let reception staff know.


The 2017 survey is now open - please complete online from here, print a paper version here or collect from either Coltishall or Spixworth surgeries. Your feedback and comments are important to us. Thank you

Summary Care Record ( posted on Jun 26, 2014 )

The practice has created a Summary Care Record to be used in emergency care. This record is designed to ensure those caring for you have enough information to treat you safely. The record contains information about any medicines you are taking, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had. Your Summary Care Record will be available to authorised healthcare staff providing your care anywhere in England, but they will ask your permission before they look at it. This means if you have an accident or become ill, the doctors treating you will have immediate access to important information about your health.

As a patient you have a choice about having a summary care record. To find out more information, please download the following leaflet and form for you to consider and complete - Summary care record leaflet
