Welcome to Hounsfield Surgery Online
Hounsfield Surgery serves the whole of Sutton-on-Trent as well as its surrounding villages. Our team includes two GPs, one Nurse, one Health Care Support Nurse as well as our practice manager, reception, administration and dispensing staff.
We offer a full general practice service and run specialist clinics for children and pregnant women, diabetes and asthma sufferers and for patients needing minor surgery. We also offer an on-site dispensing service.
At Hounsfield Surgery, we aim to treat all our patients promptly, courteously and in complete confidence.
This website is for both existing patients and those considering registering with us. It tells you about our services, how to access them and some general information about how our practice operates.
If you live in our practice area and would like to register with us, please complete one of our registration forms and health questionnaire, which are both available from our reception.
Care Quality Commission
We were inspected by the Care Quality Commission on the 29th July 2015 and receive an overall good rating across all areas of care. Further information can be found on their website here
Policies on access to records
You can find our policy regarding Patient access to their GP Record, Summary Care Record and GP2GP Record Transfer here. You are now able to request access to view your detailed coded record online via SystemOnline. If you are already registered to order prescriptions and book appointments you can request this access once logged in or if you require access, please enquire in the surgery, bringing photo ID unless practice staff know you well. This access will allow you to see entries that have been entered onto your record using codes but will not at present allow you view the free text narrative. You can also see the results of some tests online.
Named Allocated GP
Each patient is allocated to a named GP within the practice. This doctor will show on certain documents generated within the practice such as prescriptions. This GP has nominal responsibility for overseeing your care. You can however book to see any GP within the practice. Should you wish to confirm your named GP or change your named GP please contact us.
Friends and Family Test
The Quality of the service that the practice provides is now monitored by using a simple survey called the Friends and Family Test which we would appreciate it if you could complete here.
