Welcome to St George's Surgery, Cheltenham
St George's Surgery, a long established practice, originated in Gloucester Road, then 139 St George's Road before moving to 129 St George's Road in 1968. It is from there the surgery has continued to grow and flourish to its present size of 6 partners.
The move to its current site in April 1999 as part of the St Paul's Medical Centre has provided a unique, modern and well designed concept offering a wide range of facilities including a pharmacist, optician, chiropractor, health authority dental service, on-site physiotherapy, chiropody, reflexology, aromatherapy and phlebotomy services. We have disabled access, and baby changing facilities.
The new St George's Surgery retains its belief in providing a good effective doctor/patient relationship within a friendly environment keeping the feel and old fashioned values of the family general practice.
As well as a source of information about our practice, the staff and the services we provide, we hope you will use this website as a useful resource for other health-related information. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like. We can use your ideas to improve our online services and further develop the content of this site.
NHS ENGLAND - SHARED MEDICAL INFORMATION- YOU NEED TO MAKE A CHOICE :
The proposal in brief:
Information about you and the care you receive is shared, in a secure system, by healthcare staff to support your treatment and care. NHS England would like to link information from all the different places where you receive care, such as your GP, hopsital and community service to help provide a full picture. Information such as your postcode and NHS number, but not your name, will be used to link your records in a secure system, so your identity is protected. Information which does not reveal your identity can then be used by others, such as researchers and those planning health services, to make sure we provide the best care possible for everyone.
This will allow comparisons to be made between the care provided in one area against another.
How your information is used and shared is controlled by law and strict rules are in place to protect your privacy. We need to make sure that you know this is happening and the choices you have.
If you are happy for your information to be shared you do not need to do anything. If you do not want your information to be shared outside the GP practice, you must inform us. You can complete a simple form and we will ensure that your information is not shared. No action will mean data will be automatically extracted at the beginning of 2014.
Please pick up a leaflet from the practice explaining the process, its aims and your rights
