Reepham & Aylsham Medical Practice

Staff Breavement


It is with great sadness that the Reepham and Aylsham Medical


Practice announce that Jo Laird, Nurse Practitioner at the Practice,


passed away over the weekend.

 At this difficult time, we politely request that patients respect the


privacy of Jo’s family and colleagues in their interactions with


the Practice.

Named GP for All Patients



You may be aware from the 1st April 2015 all practices are required to allocate all their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for your care and support.


Having a named GP does not prevent you from seeing any other GP in the practice.


Your named GP will not be available at all times and if your needs are urgent, you may need to discuss them with an alternative doctor. All of your records are available to every GP in the surgery.


We have made every effort to make patients aware of who their named GP is. If however you are unsure please ask the receptionist team at the practice.


This notice applies to all of our patients including children. Patients over 75 have already been informed of their named GP.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)



You may have heard about the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and wondering what it means and how it will effect you?


From Friday 25th May the data protection law is changing.  The EU General Data Protection Regulation, known as GDPR, will set higher standards and accountability for organisations to keep personal data secure and protected.  It also gives you more control over your data, including how other organisations contact you.


Like many other organisations we have been working hard to make sure we comply with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) .


Protecting your data is really important to us, and always has been.  We’ve recently updated our Privacy Policy, so if you would like to read it in more detail the latest version can be found by clicking the link provided or you can ask reception for a copy.


This  policy describes how medical information about you may be used and disclosed and how you can get access to this information.


To find out more visit our General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) page on this website.


NHS Health Check



What is an NHS Health Check?


The NHS Health Check is a health check-up for adults in England aged 40-74. It's designed to spot early signs of stroke, kidney disease, heart disease, type 2 diabetes or dementia. As we get older, we have a higher risk of developing one of these conditions. An NHS Health Check helps find ways to lower this risk.


How do I get an NHS Health Check?


If you are between the age of 40-74 you are eligable for an NHS Health Check every 5 years. You can contact the surgery to book an appointment.



To find out more information about the NHS Health Check please click the following link: NHS Health Check Information and NHS Health Check Leaflet

More GP Appointments Released


Over the next three months we are working with NHS England to offer extra GP appointments. This is because we know that there are times you want to be able to see a GP at short notice. We also know that over winter lots of people have seasonal illnesses which require more than a pharmacy but don't need emergency treatment.


The extra appointments are bookable on the day by ringing the surgery on the usual telephone number.


If you haven't yet signed up for GP Online Services simply visit reception with a form of photo ID, we can sign you up there and then. GP Online Services makes it easy to book appointments online, request repeat prescriptions and view some of your medical records. Find out more about this on NHS Choices.


If you are not able to attend an appointment you have booked, for whatever reason, please let us know. We can then offer that appointment to someone else that needs it.

Enhanced Summary Care Record




If you would like to ehnance your summary care record please speak to our reception team.


Why you need an Enhanced Summary Care Record


Most people in England have a basic NHS Summary Care Record which contains key health information about you, however additional information can be added that could be important to your treatment. This is called an Enhanced Summary Care Record.


This means that if you have to call an ambulance, contact 111, the Out of Hours service or go to hospital anywhere in England, they will be able to access vital health information about you, which could help them treat you more quickly and effectively.


Having an Enhanced Summary Care Record means you don't have to remember all the details of your past care.


It is quick, secure and safe for health staff to access your Enhanced Summary Care Record. Access to this information could make a real difference to your care as clinicians will have all the information they need.


If you would like more information on this visit our Enhanced Summary Care Records tab.


Self Care Campaign





A campaign is being launched by the five CCGs in Norfolk and Waveney to encourage patients to self-care and not to ask their doctor for everyday medicines.


The change comes after figures showed the local NHS spent £5.7m last year on remedies for minor conditions such as diarrhoea and indigestion, as well as medicines such as paracetamol.


To read more about the campaign please click here. 




Self Care Campaign



What is self care?


The self care forums definition of self care is: "the actions that individuals take for themselves, on behalf of and with others in order to develop, protect, maintain and improve their health, wellbeing or wellness."


Why is self care good for people?


In many cases people can take care of their minor ailments, reducing the number of GP consultations and enabling GPs to focus on caring for higher risk patients, such as those with comorbidities, the very young and elderly, managing long-term conditions and providing new services. Self care empowers people with the confidence and information to look after themselves when they can, and visit the GP when necessary.
