Since 1 April 2008, you have the right to choose the hospital you want to be treated at.
Information about you and the care you receive is shared in a secure system by healthcare staff to support your treatment and care. Information such as your postcode and NHS number but not your name will be used to link your records in a secure system so your identity is protected. This information can then be used by others such as researchers and those planning health services.
If you do not want information that identifies you to be shared outside the practice you must let us know so we can make a note on your medical record. Please contact the surgery if you wish to opt out of the data sharing programme
Non - NHS reports
The GP's receive many requests for reports from govenment organisations or other third parties.
The GP's do not have a contractual obligation to complete any of these forms and they all attract a fee which takes into consideration their professional time and an administrative charge.
NHS work must always take priority. Please be patient as you will have to wait for reports/letters/forms etc.
A single appointment with the GP is for 10 minutes. If you feel you have a complex problem that requires longer than this or multiple problems please book a double appointment as a courtesy to the patients who are booked after you. Same day appointments are available for children aged 5 years and under.
