New Service - Hearing Aid Batteries

With effect from Wednesday 23rd January 2019 patients will be able to collect replacement hearing aid batteries from Chew Medical Practice.  Every other Wednesday a volunteer will attend the surgery between 11am and 12.30pm to give out batteries.  No appointment is necessary and if this time is inconvenient you can leave your battery card with Dispensary and they will advise the date for collection.

Please note that as this service is provided by Virgin Care they cannot supply batteries for hearing aids issued by any other service provider.

Sharing GP records with the Royal United Hospital

Clinical staff at RUH are now able to view your entire GP records when they treat you.  They cannot change them or add to them, but they are able to look at information that could be useful in treating you.  It will also speed up access to information that the hospital would otherwise have to request from us.

The hospital doctor or nurse will ask for your consent before they look at your GP record, and you can refuse at the time if you prefer.  Alternatively you can tell us that you do not want your health record shared in this way, and we can block it at this end.
