Late Night Appointments

We are pleased to announce that we now have late night opening on Tuesdays and Wednesdays to 8pm for nurse and Healthcare Assistant appointments.  We hope this will prove beneficial to patients who struggle to make a day time nurse appointments.  You can see our Healthcare Assistant Evie for the following: BP's, Healthchecks, Dementia Screening, Vascular checks, Stroke/TIA checks, Hearing Tests, Mental Health Reviews, Dopplers, B12 injections, ECG's. 

Appointments

A small number of online appointments are available to book. This includes onlline booking for telephone appointments.

We continue to have a very high number of patients who fail to attend appointments they have made each day so please do remember to cancel so they can be offered to other patients who may really need them . You can cancel your appointments online. 
 Online Access to records

We now offer patients limited access to their medical records. We will have further information about this on our website shortly. Please note you will need to provide photographic ID to get the required log on. Please ask reception for more information.

ConfidentialityFreedom of Information

You are entitled by law to have access to your medical records. Please apply in writing to the practice manager. An access fee may be charged together with the cost of any photocopies.

Information Sharing Policy

Under the Data Protection Act 1998 the practice is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of any information we hold about our patients. As part of patient care, information is shared between members of the healthcare team, some of whom you may not meet. Information collected may also be used on an anonymised basis to help maintain and improve quality of care and plan services for our patients. Anonymised data may also be passed on to the primary care trust to help improve the quality of care provided by the NHS generally. All information is treated as strictly confidential and is not given to anyone who does not need it. All staff members are bound to maintain patient confidentiality unless information is required by law to be released to relevant authorities, or released with patient consent. Please contact the practice manager if you have concerns.

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION – PUBLICATION SCHEME

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 obliges the practice to produce a Publication Scheme. A Publication Scheme is a guide to the ‘classes’ of information the practice intends to routinely make available. This scheme is available from the practice manager.

Fair Processing

This practice may supply personal health data to comply with its legal obligations from time to time, as directed by the Secretary of State for Health, or other recognised Statutory Authority.
