Sonning Common Health Centre is a surgery in South Oxfordshire, a few miles from Reading. We accept new patients from a large area, ranging from Nettlebed in the North, North Caversham in the South, Woodcote to the East and Henley to the West.
If you would like to register with us please collect a new patient registration pack from our Reception team. New patients need to complete a registration form, a new patient questionnaire and a Summary Care Record form (see below).
To save time patients can print off blank forms to complete before coming into the surgery. Please click this link: SCHC registration pack
Please note that we require these forms to complete your registration. If you come to Reception to register please bring proof of address (a utility bill or bank statement). If registering a child please bring their red child health book.
The Patient Access website offers a number of services to our patients that are available online.
New patients need to read this Patient Online Information Leaflet before completing a Patient Online registration form as it outlines important points to consider before you apply for access to your medical record.
To sign up for Patient Online services (e.g. booking and managing appointments, repeat prescriptions, viewing your medical records) new patients need to register. Please read our online services tab on this website to understand this fully.
Summary Care Record (SCR)
The SCR is an electronic record of important patient information, created from GP medical records. It can be seen and used by authorised staff in other areas of the health and care system involved in the patient's direct care.
Access to SCR information means that care in other settings is safer, reducing the risk of prescribing errors. It also helps avoid delays to urgent care.
At a minimum, the SCR holds important information about:
- current medication
- allergies and details of any previous bad reactions to medicines
- the name, address, date of birth and NHS number of the patient
The patient can also choose to include additional information in the SCR, such as details of long-term conditions, significant medical history, or specific communications needs. For further information about a Summary Care Record please visit the NHS Digital website.
