 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.

Carer Support Services available at this surgery

Are you a hidden carer?

This surgery and Worcestershire Association of Carers are working together to introduce a new service, dedicated to the support of carers. 

In Worcestershire there are estimated to be 60,000 carers who look after someone else, but only a fraction of them are known to support services.  Many people who provide this unpaid care do not see themselves as carers.  Also, many who are in a caring role do not know where to go for information or support.

People who provide high levels of care can often find their own needs are neglected with the demands of the role affecting their career, finances and relationships.  This can have a detrimental effect on their physical and emotional wellbeing.  Unsurprisingly, carers are twice as likely to suffer ill health compared to those who do not have caring responsibilities.

Are you a carer who looks after someone? It may be a friend, relative or neighbour who, through illness, disability, frailty or old age, could not manage without your help.  If you are a carer, the surgery wants to support you through the new carer support service. 

Please contact reception for more information.
