 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. 

National Summary Care Record

NHS Worcestershire started its Public Information Programme on the 29 March 2010.  All Worcestershire residents over the age of 16 will receive an information pack explaining what the National Summary Care Record (SCR) system will entail.  Please read this leaflet carefully.

This information Programme will last a minimum of 12 weeks, allowing patients sufficient time to decide if they wish to have a Summary Care Record (SCR) created.

People will have a summary care record (SCR) created automatically, unless they specifically tell their medical practice they do not want one, by signing the relevant form.  The following link takes the user to a page from which the opt out form can be down loaded.

Further information on the Summary care Record is available from www.nhscarerecords.nhs.uk

Alternatively further information is available by ringing 0845 603 8510.

The Local Medical Committee suggests that Practices should tell patients that it is a personal decision whether or not to have an SCR, and is not something practices can advise on.
