NHS England and Cambridgeshire & Peterborough CCG have asked General Practice to support the local urgent care system over the Easter Holiday Period in order to help reduce A&E attendance and hospital admissions over this 4 day weekend.
Jenner Health Centre will be supporting this one off request and will be open to patients on the morning of Saturday 4 April 2015 from 8.30am – 12 noon.
During this session we are only able to see patients with URGENT problems and this is not for ROUTINE matters or appointments.
You will not be able to pre-book these appointments. Please call after 8.30am on the Saturday morning if you have an urgent problem and the Doctor or Nurse will discuss this with you and make a plan to see you.

Summary Care Records – coming soon in early March!
The NHS in England has introduced the Summary Care Record, an electronic health record that can be accessed when you need urgent treatment from somebody other than your own GP.
Summary Care Records only contain key information about the medicines you are taking, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had in the past. You will be able to add other information too if you and your GP agree that it is a good idea to do so.
In early March (9 & 10 March 2015) a summary care record will automatically be created for you and uploaded unless you choose to opt out.
We are delighted to announce that Dr Simon Brown will be joining the Practice as a Partner from April 2015. Some of you will already know Dr Brown as he has been a regular locum for us over the last 12 months or so. Until April, Dr Brown will be at the practice for approximately two days a week and we are looking forward to him joining the team full time from April.
Fund Raising Event
Jenner Health Centres Patient Participation Groups show on Saturday 21 February raised over £900 which is an amazing total. This will be split between the charity Whittlesey Young Peoples Counselling Service, and the Practice to purchase equipment it wouldn’t normally be able to provide. We are very grateful indeed to the performers, sponsors, local businesses who provided raffle prizes, all those who came to the show and to the PPG for their time putting together this amazing fundraising event.
