MERGER: SWILLINGTON HEALTH PRACTICE & OULTON MEDICAL CENTRE & MARSH STREET SURGERY
In order to ensure the safe and timely transfer of patient information as Swillington Health Practice (SHP) joins Oulton Medical Centre (OMC) and Marsh Street Surgery (MSS) a number of interim measures are required to be put in place.
SHP NHS computer system will merge with OMC & MSS on Tuesday 6th November. Thereafter SHP system will cease to exist.
· From Monday 22nd October all SHP registrations will be carried out at OMC. Patients can register at any of the 3 locations. Patients will fill in the documents as normal but the information will be entered on the OMC NHS Computer system.
· The NHS computer system for the 3 Practices needs to be taken off line in order for the merger to happen. This will occur from 1600 Tuesday 6 November and all 3 Sites will be closed (OMC, SHP, MSS).
· Gp and Nurse Appointments that would have been available from 1600 – 1800 will be moved earlier in the day to reduce any restriction.
· GP appointments on the 6th and 7th of November will be ‘Book on the day’ to ensure maximum availability to the patient population.
From 7th November all Patients will be able to access services from any of the 3 locations.
