Welcome to St George's Surgery, Cheltenham
Update 8th November - due to the transfer to a new computer system from today 8th November until after 16th November we are unable to send any prescriptions electronically. Any prescription requests will during this period be done on paper and will be available for collection from the surgery by you or your pharmacy if you have such an arrangement. You may have to inform your pharmacy of this.
The online Patient Services facility has been switched off and we will be contacting all users of this service with the details of the new service and how to register shortly after 16th November.
We apologise for this inconvenience but reassure you that the benefits will be seen in the new system.
Update 20th October - We are moving to a new computer system with effect from 16th November - this means that between October and up until that date there will be fewer routine appointments available this is due to the fact that we are being limited to the opening of appointments moving forward. We apologise for this but you can still be seen in an emergency at the surgery but if your request is not urgent please wait until after 16th November before contacting us.
Our situation is not assisted by the fact that currently Dr Chapple is off ill with a broken hip and in addition we have lost two nurses and the recruitment process is taking longer than we would have hoped.
Thank you for your patience.
We are a 6 doctor partner family practice based at the St Paul's Medical Centre. This provides a unique, modern and well designed concept offering a wide range of facilities including a pharmacist, optician, chiropractor, health authority dental service, on-site physiotherapy, chiropody, reflexology, aromatherapy and phlebotomy services. We have disabled access, and baby changing facilities.

NHS ENGLAND - SHARED MEDICAL INFORMATION- YOU NEED TO MAKE A CHOICE :
The proposal in brief:
Information about you and the care you receive is shared, in a secure system, by healthcare staff to support your treatment and care. NHS England would like to link information from all the different places where you receive care, such as your GP, hospital and community service to help provide a full picture. Information such as your postcode and NHS number, but not your name, will be used to link your records in a secure system, so your identity is protected. Information which does not reveal your identity can then be used by others, such as researchers and those planning health services, to make sure we provide the best care possible for everyone.
This will allow comparisons to be made between the care provided in one area against another.
How your information is used and shared is controlled by law and strict rules are in place to protect your privacy. We need to make sure that you know this is happening and the choices you have.
If you are happy for your information to be shared you do not need to do anything.If you do not want your information to be shared outside the GP practice, you must inform us. You can complete a simple form and we will ensure that your information is not shared. No action will mean data will be automatically extracted at the beginning of 2014.
Please pick up a leaflet from the practice explaining the process, its aims and your rights.
