Computer System Upgrade

Computer system update - Patient Information

On 8th October 2014 we updated our clinical computer system from EMIS LV to EMIS Web.

EMIS LV has been used by the Practice for many years but has now been superseded by EMIS Web.

Computer system upgrade - what does it mean for patients?

We are told that this change will improve your consultation with your doctor or nurse - although as with any software change it may take a little time for us to get fully conversant with it.

EMIS Web is hosted to NHS Connecting for Health (CFH) standards, which means it meets the most stringent security and service levels, ensuring that patient data is offered the maximum protection.

Whilst we will do everything we can to ensure a smooth transition there will inevitably be some disruption during the upgrade.

The main areas affected will be:

  • Prescriptions
  • Giving out test results
  • Routine Appointments
  • New patient registrations

Repeat Prescription Ordering

Your patience and understanding would be appreciated during this transitional period

Dr Hannah J  McHugh (Joey)

Burnham and Berrow Medical Centre Doctors and staff are pleased to announce that Dr Joey McHugh joined the Surgery with effect from 26 August 2014.

We are extremely lucky to have Dr McHugh joining us as a full time GP partner and we would like to offer her a warm welcome to the Surgery.

Patients previously registered with Dr Sally Holl will now be registered with Dr McHugh.

 

Dr Sally Holl - Retirement

The Practice is very sad to announce that Dr Sally Holl will be retiring completely from general practice early in July 2014.
Sally has been a Partner at Burnham & Berrow Medical Centre since the 1st April 1983. She will have completed over 31 years of dedicated service to the local community, and she will be sorely missed.
Dr Holl is perhaps best known for her unfailing patience, charming manner and a very sound and thorough medical knowledge.
To those of us who work at Burnham & Berrow Medical Centre, Sally is known as a warm-hearted colleague, who offers unfailing helpfulness and is always good humoured.

AUGUST 2014 - update for patients of Dr Sally Holl

We are pleased to announce that patients previously registered with Dr Sally Holl will now be registered with our new lady partner, Dr Joey McHugh.

We are delighted to welcome Dr McHugh to the Practice.

Computer System upgrade

Patient Information 

In October 2014 we will be updating our clinical computer system from EMIS LV.  Read More »

Patients registered with Dr Michael Thomson and Dr Hilary Allen

Following Dr Thomson’s retirement in December, we are continuing in our search for his replacement.

In the meantime, Dr Thomson’s patient list will be reallocated throughout the Burnham & Berrow Medical Centre GP’s.

We are pleased to announce that following Dr Allen’s semi-retirement at the end of March, Dr Fiona Gardner has joined the Practice as a Salaried GP. Dr Allen’s patients will be transferred to Dr Gardner’s patient list.

As Dr Allen will be continuing her work as a locum doctor, she may occasionally be seen at Burnham & Berrow Medical Centre in the future.
