Advice for parents during coronavirus
Whilst coronavirus is infectious to children it is rarely serious. If your child is unwell it is likely to be a non-coronavirus illness, rather than coronavirus itself.

Our Mission Statement
St Georges Surgery aims to provide a safe and professional primary health care service to our patients whilst ensuring we always put the needs of our patients at the centre of everything we do as well as maintaining confidentiality at all times and continuing to develop our committed complement of staff through ongoing support and training.
As part of our plans to improve the services to our patients, we have produced this website which tells you about the practice and the services we offer; therefore please read it carefully. We trust that you will find it helpful and informative and we suggest that you bookmark it for future reference.
We would value your opinion as to its usefulness to you and any constructive advice on how it could be improved. Whilst we endeavour to ensure that it is up to date, there will inevitably be practice changes which will be done when the website is updated.

With full disabled facilities and a lift, the surgery can easily accommodate those patients who have mobility problems.
There is parking available to the front and side of the building. We must ask patients not to park in the spaces marked for staff parking. Please do not park in the spaces marked for the disabled if you are able-bodied.
Lancashire and South Cumbria has been chosen by NHS England to be a national pilot for the digitisation of Medical Records. Scanning these paper based records and making them digital will enable better utilisation of space, creating more clinical space, staff areas, multi team space and video hubs, removing the need for some practices to build extensions. In addition it will also make your record more easily and speedily accessible to clinical staff within your practice.
Your complete GP medical record will be digital and stored in a secure cloud based clinical system (only accessible by your GP practice) with the paper based records being securely destroyed following BS EN 15713:2009 Secure destruction of confidential material. Your GP will still be able to access your records easily within this system. The scanning and destruction of the paper records will follow strict data protection guidelines adhered to by the NHS. As with paper based records, digital records are stored for the durations specified in the Records Management Codes of Practice for Health and Social Care. For GP patient records, this states that they may be destroyed 10 years after the patient’s death if they are no longer needed.
If you wish to discuss the scheme, please inform the Practice direct either by letter addressed to Kelly Maxwell, Practice Manager, St Georges Surgery, 62 Haslingden Road, Blackburn, BB2 3HS or by e-mail FAO Kelly Maxwell to firstname.lastname@example.org
