PRIVACY NOTICE FOR PATIENTS

Your Information, Your Rights 

Our Fair Processing & Privacy Notice explains why we collect information about you and how that information may be used to deliver your direct care and manage the local health and social care system.

The notice reflects:

  • What information we collect about you
  • How and why we use that information 
  • How we retain your information and keep it secure 
  • Who we share your information with and why we do this

The notice also explains your rights in relation to consent to use your information, the right to control who can see your data and how to seek advice and support if you feel that your information has not been used appropriately.

 

A full copy of the Fair Processing & Privacy Notice is available via our website or from reception.

  Appointments

You can choose to see any doctor in the practice, but we recommend that you see the same doctor where possible, as we believe this leads to improved care for you. 

Urgent Appointments

Patients who feel they have a medically urgent problem should phone reception. Reception is authorised by the doctors to obtain basic information about the reason for the request in order to allow them to prioritise care appropriately. 

Interpreting Services

Interpreting services can be arranged via reception. Please ask in advance of your appointment.

Telephoning the Surgery

If you wish to speak to a doctor, nurse practitioner or a practice nurse please contact reception and leave your telephone number. Your telephone call will be returned - but please be aware that messages which could potentially breach patient confidentiality will not be left on answerphone machines/voicemail.

Cancellations

If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
