ONLINE SERVICE

Patients can now consult online with a Clinician at our practice as part of a new online service which could save you time and a journey.

Using the online consultation service makes it easier for us to quickly decide how we can best help you with the least amount of disruption to your day. The service is free and confidential and medical consultations are always reviewed by a GP or Nurse Practitioner.

If your matter is urgent and outside working hours (Monday - Friday 8 am - 6:30 pm) please contact 111. If severe, please consider attending A&E or calling 999.

This service is only available to patients registered with Winterton Medical Practice. You do not need any login details. We aim to review all routine queries that are submitted before 3:30 pm on the same working day, however we may not contact you the same day. Clinically urgent queries will be prioritised.

Use our online consultation service by clicking the button below.

If you register to use the system then you won’t have to enter your personal details every time you send us a consultation.

Passport name not matching covid passport

We are being asked by patients to change their name on their GP records to match their passport. This is because usually they have changed their name but only informed either the passport office or the surgery but not both. We can do this on your GPrecords, but the automatic update this triggers to the central NHS database that links to your covid passport may take a few days. This is out of our control.

You need to send us a clear photo of your passport showing the exact name and we will match this. We need to see this before we can make the change. Please send  to 
EMAIL

It will take us 3-4 days to do this.

You must understand that for a while your GP records will be out of sync with Hospital records and prescriptions, until the automatic links are updated externally. We will only change your records back when you change your name on your passport, and you will need email the photo of your new passport once you have updated
this. What we are effectively doing is accepting your current passport as your legal name and your medical records will shortly show this.

We will try to do this within a couple of days of asking, but this cannot take precedence over urgent medical tasks.

Why are GPs working differently?

BRITISH MEDICAL ASSOCIATION

The BMA have released information to explain to patients why their doctor is working differently after facing the covid-19 pandemic. Despite lockdown measures being lifted, the pandemic is still not over. Face to face contact has been limited across all NHS services to protect you and to keep you safe from the risk of infection.
