Receptionists will ask all patients for brief details of the reason for their appointment. This is to ensure that patients are seen in the right clinic, with the correct clinician. The receptionists are not being intrusive are bound by the rules of confidentiality; they are merely doing their job as requested by our GP’s in order to offer a more streamlined and efficient service for ALL of our patients.
Patient Data Sharing
A new patient data information sharing system has started. Easy read information here. Sharing of patient data will be used by the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) to help support comissioning, public health planning and research primarily. HSCIC will be able to extract patient data directly from our clinical system and hold this information securely. To find out more about this information sharing please read the leaflet here. Additionally there are some frequently asked questions that might provide more information, please click here for these. If you object to your data being shared either outside the practice and/or disclosed by HSCIC then please use the attached form here to opt out of this process. All forms need to be returned to the surgery reception. Please note if you have already opted out of the summary care record sharing you will still need to complete this form to opt out of this sharing of information.
