 IMPORTANT CHANGES TO HOW WE HANDLE YOUR DATA 


 Your GP will shortly be required to supply your personal and confidential medical information to the Health and Social Care Information Centre and NHS England.  The practice has NO CHOICE but to allow them to extract this information.  However individual patients can instruct their practice to stop the transfer of their data.  For more information on this important issue, please ask reception for a leaflet or see the link on the right of this screen, "Extraction of Personal Data". Below is an opt out form for completion if you do not want your information extracted.

 DO YOU WANT TO REGISTER FOR ONLINE ACCESS TO MAKE TELEPHONE APPOINTMENTS AND ORDER REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS? 


*************************************************


 If you want to register for this you will need to come to the surgery with two forms of identification.  One must be photographic, i.e. passport, driving licence, bus pass, and one must contain evidence of your address i.e. utility bill.  We will then give you log in details so that you are able to make telephone appointments with your doctor and you will be able to order your repeat prescriptions.


  This is not available to anyone under the age of 16 years.


The repeat prescriptions do actually link into your medical records so will be accurate. 

Access To Your Medical Records

Individuals have a right to apply for access to health information held about them, and in some cases, other people.

 

Please bear in mind that often insurance companies or solicitors will request copy records with the patient, or their representative's, consent.  It's important to make sure that hard copies of the same notes are not requested, and paid for, twice.

 

Also especially when obtaining medical records to be shared with a third party, such as a solicitor, be careful about the consent you are giving.  For example, do you want a solicitor to have copies of all your medical records or just have access to a particular episode or occurrence you might be discussing with them?

There is a overnment website which explains rights to accessing medical records, the fees which can be charged and the forms which thos requesting the records, should complete.

The following link takes you to a document which explains those rights to accessing records, the fees which can be charged and the forms which those requesting records, can complete.  The forms are on page 22, 23 and 24 of the document.  The practice can provide the forms if there are difficulties downloading them.

Finally, if you have a query about an aspect of your nedical record, you can always speak with a doctor about coming in to view your records.
