Booking an Appointment

In line with Government guidelines, we try to offer patients a choice of appointments so that they can either:

  • Book in advance
  • Ring in and be triaged for urgent same-day appointments (not usually with your doctor)
  • Visit eConsult online (our Home Page) to inform us of the problem and we will contact you by the end of the next working day

Under normal circumstances, however, and depending on the availability of your doctor, you can pre-book as far ahead as 14 days for your Doctor or up to one month for our nurses.

For same-day appointments, you will receive a call back from one of our Triage Team and they will assess your symptoms and arrange a time for an appointment if necessary.

You can book an appointment by telephone, Online Services or eConsult. If you register to use our online services you can book Phlebotomy and Asthma/COPD clinics, view existing appointments and cancel an appointment.

You can book an appointment by telephone or by logging in to your Online Services Account; to go to the log-in page please click the image below.

Summary Care Records

There is a Central NHS Computer System called the Summary Care Record (SCR). The Summary Care Record is meant to help emergency doctors and nurses help you when you contact them when the surgery is closed. 

As the central NHS computer system develops, (known as the ‘Summary Care Record’ – SCR), other staff who work in the NHS will be able to access it along with information from hospitals, out of hours services, and specialists letters that may be added as well. 

Your information will be extracted from practices such as ours and held on central NHS databases.   

As with all new systems, there are pros and cons to think about. For example, if you are being seen by an emergency doctor they will have access to your medical records which may help avoid mistakes or problems.

You should be asked to give your consent each time a member of NHS Staff wishes to access your record unless you are medically unable to do so. 

On the other hand, you may have strong views about sharing your personal information and wish to keep your information at the level of this practice.

Connecting for Health (CFH), the government agency responsible for the Summary Care Record have agreed with doctors’ leaders that new patients registering with this practice should be able to decide whether or not their information is uploaded to the Central NHS Computer System. 

For existing patients, it is different in that it is assumed that you want your record uploaded to the Central NHS Computer System unless you actively opt-out. 

 

To view your summary care record please click on the Picture below, Please contact Henfield Medical Centre if you wish to discuss this with a member of our team.

Belltree Music Therapy - Online & Free

Please watch this introduction video on Belltree Music Therapy by Tina Warnock

 Transcript

Hi I’m Tina from Belltree. Over the past few months the Belltree Music Therapy team has been working hard to produce some new video resources to support your health and well-being.
I'm really pleased to be introducing you to the Belltree online resources, which are available here free of charge on our website thanks to the generous support of the arts council covid19 emergency response fund. We know from research that music lights up the whole brain and that everyone has an inbuilt ability to respond to music regardless of age illness or disability.
These videos offer a wide range of ideas and guided activities for making music at home on your own or in your bubbles and there's no need for you to have any prior musical experience.
We can't offer music therapy in video format as it centers around a therapeutic relationship but these videos offer a mixture of proactive and passive musical activities to support your social and communication skills, positive relationships, self-care and good mental health. We really hope you find them useful and enjoyable.
