System One Change Over
In July the practice will be changing our computerized records system to system one. Many practices in Ealing borough have already or will be making this change over the next year. The purpose being that all hospitals and GP surgeries will use the same system. It will allow for better care and improve communication channels for patients. However for patients that have opted out of information sharing the interlinking of services will not be applicable. We ask that you are patient whilst this change is taking place. There are some dates thats we will have a reduction of routine appoitments, however we will still have daily urgent appointments. the dates affected will be 14th, 15th, 16th, 21st, 22nd, 28th and 29th of July. We will also be unable to take orders for repeat prescriptions on the 28th and 29th July. More information on this change will be available nearer the time.
