 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. 

How to Register With The Practice

register_now_pink_signWhen patients register, it is with the practice rather than a particular GP. Patients registering with the Practice will be asked if they wish to name a preferred GP. Subject to appointment availability, patients will still be able to choose which GP they book an appointment with.

When you come to the surgery please bring your NHS card if you have it, as this speeds up the registration process.

Practices are now being asked to see patients' proof of identity, and address,  when they register in order to reduce fraud within the NHS.  The guidance advises that a combination of the following can be accepted as identification (it is preferable that one item of photo ID is seen, along with one document containing the patient’s address):

·      birth certificate ·      marriage certificate ·      medical card  ·      driving licence

·      passport  ·      local authority rent card  ·      paid utility bills

·      bank/building society cards/statements

·      National Insurance number card 

·      letter from Benefits Agency/benefit book/signing on card

·      papers from the home office 

This list is not exhaustive. The following documents should not be accepted as proof of identity if presented in isolation:

·      library card  ·      video rental card  ·      health club card ·      private rent book.

We would be grateful therefore if you could bring this documentation when you come to register with us.

Practice Boundary

The Practice boundary is designed so the majority of the Practice population lives within Stourport. Consequently the boundary no longer extends into Bewdley, or into Kidderminster past Birchen Coppice for new patients.

A map available in Reception, clearly indicates this boundary.

New Patient Checks

All new patients are asked to complete a new patient questionnaire.  This provides us with important information about you in advance of us receiving your medical records from your previous surgery.
