Rutherford Medical Centre
Welcome to Rutherford Medical Centre's website.
The aim of the website is to give the local community information about the services that the practice offers and the members of the practice who strive to bring you those services. The website brings together a comprehensive list of services offered by the practice with times and booking information.
Summary Care Record
Our practice is due to be switched on for Summary Care Record soon – what does this mean for you!
- A Summary Care Record will be created for each patient.
- This means if you visit an emergency service anywhere in England, the person responsible for treating you, will be able to, with your permission view which medication you are taking – this means the person who is treating you will be able to offer you the best care possible, at the point of care
The NHS comes under increased pressure during winter, with the arrival of cold weather triggering or worsening some illnesses, meaning that health services are more in demand.
Rutherford Medical Centre will provide additional doctor appointments each week from November – March to deal with the extra strain on services during the winter months.
