CERVICAL CANCER PREVENTION

The theme for the Cervical Cancer Prevention Week 2018 is “Reduce your risk”

Cervical cancer can be prevented. With your help we can ensure every woman knows how they can reduce their risk of the disease and the steps they can take to look after their health.

2 Women lose their lives to the disease every day

9 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer every day

75% of cervical cancers can be prevented by cervical screening (smear tests)

THIS MEANS:

Attending cervical screening when invited

Knowing the symptoms of cervical cancer and seeking medical advice if experiencing any

Taking up the HPV vaccination if aged 11-18

Talking to friends and family to ensure they know how they can reduce their risk

Knowing where to find support and further information

Patient Summary Care Record (SCR)

The surgery went live with the upload of patient SCR data on 12 November 2014.

The SCR contains only key demographic information about you and the medicines you are taking, allergies suffered from and any adverse reactions to medicines that you have had in the past.  It is not a full upload of your GP medical record.

The SCR means that the summary information will be available to authorised healthcare professionals in places like Accident and Emergency Departments and GP Out of Hours services. Healthcare professionals will ask your permission before they look at your record.

You are able to "opt-out" of the SCR by completing and returning a form which is available here SCR_Opt_out_Form.pdf or from reception.  You are free to change your mind at any time by informing us.  Children under the age of 16 will automatically have a SCR created for them unless their parent or guardian chooses to opt them out by completing the form.

If you have not completed an "opt-out" form then your SCR will have been uploaded and will be kept up to date going forward.
