SHARING YOUR INFORMATION WITH OTHER HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS

We will be asking every patient if they are happy to share their medical record with other users of the same clinical system. This is for the purpose of giving you the correct treatment if you attend a walk in centre or other healthcare provider.  

Success Centres at Moredon Medical Centre & Swindon NHS Health Centre - during periods of limited appointments patients may be offered alternative appointments at one of Swindon’s Success Centre's based at Moredon Medical Centre and Swindon NHS Health Centre. Reception staff will be able to book you directly into a booked GP appointment at the centre. These appointments are for minor ailments and not ongoing medical conditions. There are now additional GP appointments, operating on Saturdays and Sundays from 8am-8pm at Moredon Medical Centre and Swindon NHS Health Centre.

Text Reminder of Appointments - patients will now receive a text message reminder of their appointments at the surgery, the surgery would be grateful if patients could keep us informed of any changes to their mobile numbers.

Card Payments - Patients are advised that the surgery does not accept card payments. All payments should be by cash or cheque.

Lifestyle Advice

The amount of daily activity you take combined with what you eat and drink has an enormous impact on your overall health and well being. Being over weight or under weight are obvious indicators of a less healthy lifestyle but there are other signs, such as high blood pressure or raised blood glucose levels which can not be seen. The long term impacts of an unhealthy lifestyle can be huge including increase risk or heart attack, stroke and diabetes. The best way to reduce the risk of these serious conditions are to maintain a healthy weight, reduce alcohol consumption, stop smoking and increase your levels of daily activity. 

We can help, give you advice, refer you to specialist programmes or just support changes you want to make yourself. The key factor will always be you and the motivation you have to keep well and healthy. For more information book an appointment with our Senior Healthcare Assistant.
