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. Click here to view a map showing our practice area.
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).
Please note that we require these forms to complete your registration. If you come to Reception to register please bring valid photo ID (driving licence or passport) and proof of address (a utility bill or bank statement). If registering a child please bring their passport or their red child health book.
We can offer new patients a new patient health check if needed. You will be registered with a named doctor. However any of our doctors will be happy to see you if your own doctor is not available.
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.
Summary Care Record form
Please complete and sign this form and hand it to our Reception team. Alternatively this form is available from Reception.
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.
