The GM Care Record is a new, vital digital resource for our city region’s 2.8m citizens, that is being used to help improve health and care services and save lives. But what does that mean for you?
It means that wherever you receive care across our 10 boroughs, whether it be for a routine appointment or emergency treatment, healthcare professionals can deliver the safest and most effective care for you, without you having to repeat your story.
Thanks to this joined up approach to patient care, GPs, doctors, nurses and care practitioners will be able to securely access the most essential health and care information. The more they know about your health and care needs, the more effective care and treatment they can provide, from avoiding allergies, to knowing your care wishes to accessing blood test results.
We have a lot of 18 year olds who still have their parents mobile numbers registered on their medical records. If you are 18 or over please update us with your own mobile number. This has been causing problems with Covid vaccination invites.
Talking Therapies Stockport offer one-to-one support and structured courses for anyone experiencing common mental health problems, such as anxiety and depression. The service is available to anyone who is registered with a GP in Stockport, and is aged 11 years and above.
From Monday 15th June 2020, we ask that upon entering the practice, you wear your own face mask or face covering. You should only come into the practice if you have been asked to by a member of staff. These measures are vital if we are to protect patients, the NHS workforce and the nation’s health. If you refuse to abide by practice policy you will be asked to leave the building and be entered onto the unnacceptable behaviour pathway.

Improving your care
Until now, if you needed emergency treatment in the hospital, the doctors and nurses (clinicians) have not had access to healthcare information on your GP's computer system.
This means that the clinicians treating you in A&E will not have access to any of your medical history saved on your GP's records, such as what medication you are on, or details of any tests you may have had.
From November 2017 clinicians in the A&E department at Stepping Hill will start to use a system that will allow them to have access to your full GP records. This will help clinicians to give you safe and effective treatment that is tailored to your needs and medical history.
Unless you opt out completely, each time you go to A&E for emergency treatment, you will be asked for your permission for the clinicians to view your medical records.
In an emergency (for example, if you are unconscious or otherwise unable to say yes), the clinicians may still access this information if it is in your best interest and will improve the care they are able to give.
If you would not like your information shared with clinicians in the hospitals, or would like to know more, please speak to a member of practice staff.
Please note, if you decide not to share your data, the hospital staff will not be able to view your GP records, even in an emergency.
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
At the Park View Group Practice reserved car parking spaces for the disabled are marked near the front door. Wheelchair access to the building is via a ramp near the front entrance. The ramp also allows access to the treatment room from outside in an emergency. Patient services are provided at ground floor level. A disabled patients’ WC is provided near the front entrance. If access proves difficult to any of our disabled patients we would be happy to consider any suggestions for improvement.
