Welcome to The Burney Street Practice
Summary Care Record
The NHS in England is now using an electronic record called the Summary Care Record (SCR), which is being used to support patient care.
All the settings where you receive health care keep their own medical records about you. These places can often only share information from your records by letter, fax or phone. At times, this can delay information sharing and this can impact decision making and slow down treatment.
The Summary Care Record is a copy of key information held in your GP record. It provides authorised healthcare staff with faster, secure access to essential information about you - when you need unplanned care or when your GP practice is closed. The availability of Summary Care Records will improve the safety and quality of your care.
For more information and advice on this, please click on the link on the right hand side of the screen 'Summary Care Record' or call into the surgery.

The Burney Street practice was established over 25 years ago to serve the medical needs of the surrounding residential area. At that time the Burney Street practice was served by just one doctor.
Since then the Burney Street practice has grown to a patient list size of over 14,000. To accommodate this growth our team has steadily grown to now incorporate 8 permanent GP's (2 male & 6 female), 4 practice nurses, a healthcare assistant, phlebotomist and a comprehensive team of receptionists and Administrative Staff.
The Burney Street practice continues to serve the local Greenwich area, but with the addition of our Branch Surgery at The Wallace Health Centre we have widened our area to incorporate the new developments in and around the Creek Side area of Deptford.
Both surgeries offer identical clinics with many of our clinicians working from both sites. At the current time we can only accept new patients who live within close proximity to the surgery. Please call in or telephone our receptionists who will be able to advise you on the relevant area.
