Marham Patients - PLEASE NOTE! Morning surgeries by appointment from 1 March 2017

Welcome to the website for Howdale Surgery.
With patient’s needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need.

Howdale Group Practice Statement of Intent
Our practice is planning to offer patients the facility to view areas of their records online. The areas patients will be able to access will include a summary of information relating to medications, allergies and adverse reactions. As well as viewing this information, there will be the facility to download and print it. This will hopefully be available by 31st March 2015, subject to the availability of this service on our clinical system. Once the system is up and running, if patients do require online access to other areas of their record they will need to speak with the practice to facilitate this.
The practice also intends to offer patients the facility to be able to carry out online booking of appointments and repeat prescription ordering by 31st March 2015.
Further to these points the practice already provides an automated daily upload of any changes to a patient’s summary information to the Summary Care Record (SCR). The SCR information includes medications, allergies and adverse reactions, for which patient implied consent is required. The practice also utilises the GP2GP record transfer system.
