Teaching Practice

We are a Teaching Practice who teaches stage 1, 2 and 4 Students. Every 6 month we have a rotation of GP Registrars and every 4 month we have 2 Foundation level 2 (F2) Doctors who have came here from Hospital posts to learn primary care. This is a huge benefit to our practice as it improves access & brings modern medicine, without them there would be no future GP's.

The Great North Care Record (GNCR)

The GNCR is now operational in the region. It enables hospitals and other healthcare providers access to your medical record held at your GP surgery. It includes details of patient demographics, diagnosed conditions, allergies, medications, test results and referrals. All patients are automatically included in this scheme (unless they opted out of Summary Care Record in 2012). All patients would be asked their consent prior to any healthcare provider accessing the GP record (ie in A&E). Please read the leaflet below and get in touch, in writing please, with the practice manager if you would like to opt out of this scheme.

Detailed Coded Record Access (DCRA)

We are now able to offer our patients access to their 'coded data' within their medical records as well as the availability to book appointments and request repeat medication. The coded data includes immunisations, problems, referrals, procedure codes and other useful information. If this is something you are interested in accessing then please call at the surgery (Bringing ID with you!) and complete an online access application form. We are unable to action any online access requests over the telephone, via email or in writing as your ID must be verified.

EXISTING ONLINE USERS ALSO NEED TO COMPLETE AN APPLICATION FORM TO INCREASE THEIR ACCESS TO INCLUDE DCRA.

Cardiovascular Risks. (CVR risk)

We use a QRISK calculator, it calculates your 10 year risk of heart attach & stroke over the next 10 years. Should the result be more than 10%, patients will be asked if they would like to be prescribed a statin medication to help reduce the risk. 

Lifestyle changes you could make to help reduce your CVR risk without medication include:

- Regular exercise, at least 150 minutes per week
- A Balanced diet, at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day
- Quit smoking
- Moderating the amount of alcohol you drink
- Losing weight
