Appointment Reminders

Would you like a reminder of your appointment time and date sending to your mobile phone? If so please contact the reception team on 01274 697600.

Patients Not Attending

During May 2015, 77 patients failed to attend a prebooked appointment with one of the doctors wasting 13hrs 20mins of surgery time.

61 patients didn't attend prebooked nurse appointments wasting 16hrs 20mins of surgery time and 18 patients didn't attend with the attached teams (physio etc) wasting 7hrs 35mins.

Repeated missed appointment will result in the patient being removed from the practice list and will need to register at another surgery.

Electronic Prescribing

In May 2015,the practice and its pharmacies went live on a system called Electronic Prescribing. Initially this will be used just for patients who have regular repeat medications. This system has the benefit of a greater security between the practice and the pharmacy. As a practice, we encourage all our patients to have a conversation with their pharmacy about the scheme and make a nomination of receiving pharmacy as soon as possible. Please note patients who already have a chemist receiving their prescriptions still need to have this conversation at the pharmacy.

Care Data. Please read Carefully

your care dataInformation about you and the care you receive is shared, in a secure system, by healthcare staff to support your treatment and care.

It is important that we, the NHS, can use this information to plan and improve services for all patients. We would like to link information from all the different places where you receive care, such as your GP, hospital and community service, to help us provide a full picture. This will allow us to compare the care you received in one area against the care you received in another, so we can see what has worked best.

Information such as your postcode and NHS number, but not your name, will be used to link your records in a secure system, so your identity is protected. Information which does not reveal your identity can then be used by others, such as researchers and those planning health services, to make sure we provide the best care possible for everyone.

You have a choice. If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not have to do anything. If you have any concerns or wish to prevent this from happening, please speak to practice staff or download the opt out form below, complete it and return it to the practice

We need to make sure that you know this is happening and the choices you have.

Sharing your records: your personal information
Information about you is used in a number of ways by the NHS and social care services to support your personal care and to improve health and social care services for everyone.
 
The Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) is the national NHS organisation with a legal responsibility to collect data as people make use of NHS and social care services. The data is used both at a local level and nationally to help with planning, managing your care, supporting research into new treatments, identifying trends and issues and so forth, and is used to try to make services better for all.
 
You can, however, choose not to have information about you shared or used for any purpose beyond providing your own treatment or care.
Your right to opt out
You can choose not to have anything that could identify you shared beyond your GP practice. You can also choose for the HSCIC not to share information it collects from all health providers any further.
 
If you have previously told your GP practice that you don't want the HSCIC to share your personal confidential information for purposes other than your own care and treatment, your opt-out will have been implemented by the HSCIC from April 29 2016. It will remain in place unless you change it.
 
Simply contact your GP either to register an opt-out or end an opt-out you have already registered and they will update your medical record. Your GP practice will also be able to confirm whether or not you have registered an opt-out in the past.
 
You can find more information about how the HSCIC handles your information and choices and how it manages your opt-out on the HSCIC website
