Dr Hall             Ca – Ea
Dr Lambert     Ea – Fo
Dr Tallini        Fo – He
Dr Titcomb    He – Ke

Fundraising

Update…

We would like to say a huge thank you to all the patients who donated towards Dr Ruth Lambert and Steph Malone who ran the London Marathon on Sunday 23 April. They completed the marathon in 4 hours 31 minutes and have raised an amazing £7,200 for the Anthony Nolan Trust.

Also Jackie Winterbourne, many of you will remember as our nurse previously from our Diabetic Clinic, is doing a sponsored Parachute Jump

“As you all know I am definitely not a risk taker or thrill seeker… I even hate roller-coasters, but am going to be jumping out of a plane with my Daughter, Emma, and some of our friends and family! We are raising funds for the PICU at Southampton Hospital that cared for my Grandson. Please follow the link to read the full story and donate. We would be so grateful for any donations however small.”

Connected Care in Berkshire

We are very pleased to be able to announce the formal launch of Connected Care. This is a Berkshire-wide implementation (with Dr Tim Walter as Clinical Lead for the project) of a national program enabling all your care organisations to see your records with your permission.
This is being launched this month (November 2016) and will enable your GP records to be seen in other locations such as Royal Berks Hospital etc. As time goes on the range of sites will increase, and in return we (GPs) will be able to see and read the hospital data and eventually information from social care services.
A dedicated website called shareyourcareberkshire goes into much more detail.
