General Reminder: Please allow 3 working days for your prescriptions to be processed.

Out of Hours

Our doctors are part of SELDOC (South East London doctors on Call), a doctors' co-operative where GPs take turns to do night and weekend duties. For urgent advice when the surgery is closed please telephone SELDOC (020 8693 9066). In the case of an acute collapse or dire emergency, please dial 999.

Sexual Health Clinic 

The practice also runs a walk in Sexual Health Clinic on Wednesday evenings between 6.30-8.00pm and on Saturday mornings between 9.30-11.45am. 

Test Results

Please call the the results line direct on 020 8655 7856 or the main number on 020 8670 2414 and press option 2 for results. The results line is only available between 2.00 - 4.00pm, Monday to Friday.

Repeat Prescriptions

We cannot take requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone. You can, however, now request your repeat prescription on-line via our website.

Telephone Clinics

We now offer telephone clinics every morning with one of our GP's.  The clinics are for patients who would like advice and who feel that a face to face appointment is not necessary.  Please ask the receptionist for more informaton. 

Phoning the Practice

Please be aware that we receive a large amount of calls between 8.00am and 9.30am. Should your call not be about an appointment we would recommend that you telephone in after 10.30am.

Have you received a letter from NHS England?

If you receive a letter in the post from NHS England, it is very important that you respond.  The letter will ask you to complete a form to confirm that your address is correct.

If you do not respond, NHS England will remove you from our patient list within a period of 6 months and you will then need to re-register with us.

Research practice  

Crown Dale Medical Centre is a research practice.  We are regularly involved in research activity.  We would always obtain informed patient consent before participating in any form of research.

If you have any concerns please ask to speak to the practice manager.

 

 

Summary Care Record

summary care recordThere is a new 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. Initially, it will contain just your medications and allergies.

Later on 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. When you speak to an emergency doctor you might overlook something that is important and if they have access to your medical record it might avoid mistakes or problems, although even then, 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.

For further information visit the Connecting for Health Website

If you choose to opt out of the scheme, then you will need to complete a form and bring it along to the surgery.
