NHS England care.data
There are changes coming in how we protect the information that we record in your medical record. The changes make it a legal obligation for us to share your information. The proposed benefits of sharing identifiable data are to help plan and monitor effective patient services especially where you may receive care from several different organisations. Please see the Patient Advice tab to the right which provides further information.
What do you need to do?
If you are happy for NHS England to direct the HSCIC to extract, store and manage your data you need do nothing. The information will automatically be taken from our computer system.
If you do not want your information to be taken you must tell us and we are able to block the upload of your identifiable and personal information.
If you are happy for your data to be used by HSCIC for anonymised reports but not shared with other agencies or companies in identifiable format, let us know so that we can add an alert to your record.
Please note that there is a current shortage of Shingles Vaccine, which is beyond our control. This will result in a delay to you receiving your vaccination.
Text Messaging - Appointment Reminders
We have introduced an additional service to help you remember your appointment. You will now receive an appointment reminder by text to your mobile phone the day before your appointment, with the exception of Monday appointments where the reminder will be sent on a Friday.
To ensure you receive a text message please check the number we hold with our receptionists.
Should you not want to receive a reminder by text please advise our receptionists and they will ensure this is recorded.
Health and Happiness
Our team are dedicated to your continued good health and approach your care with professionalism, discretion and friendliness. You can count on a warm welcome from everyone involved here at the practice.
