1 Appointment 1 Problem 1 Patient: 

We politely ask our patients to only discuss one problem per appointment, for the following reasons:

  • This helps ensure clinics run to schedule and other patients aren’t inconvenienced.
  • We don’t want our doctors to rush through each problem as a serious illness might get missed.
  • Too many problems can distract the doctor on dealing with your main problem.

If you need an additional appointment to discuss further problems, our reception will be happy to help.

Thank You

Repeat Prescriptions:

Please note that repeat prescriptions take a full 48 hours (2 whole working days) to prepare.    Please remember that it is your responsibility to ensure that you hand your request into the surgery on time to avoid running out of your medication.

OUR MISSION STATEMENT:

"DELIVERING SAFER, BETTER, QUALITY CARE AT ALL TIMES"

PEAK TIME TELEPHONE CALLS:

Our peak times for telephone calls are between 8am and 11am.  Please try to avoid calling regarding non-urgent matters outside of these times.  Please only telephone for test results after 2pm.  Thank you.

 

 

Medical Research Data Protection

The staff at this practice record information about you and your health so that you can receive the right care and treatment.  We need to record this information, together with the details of the care you receive so that it is available each time we see you.

 

The information recorded about you may be used for reasons other than your personal care, for example, to help protect the health of the general public, to plan for the future, to train staff and to carry out other medical and other health research.

 

We are involved in research studies which require access to anonymous information from patient's notes.  All directly identifiable details (name, address, postcode, NHS number, full date of birth) are removed from your notes before they are collected for research and automatic programs to de-personalise any free text (non structured or coded data) are run after information is collected.  Individual patients records are added into a much large anonymous database from many patients across the UK which is used by researchers outside this practice.  This data may be anonymously linked to other data, such as hospital data.

 

If you would like to opt out of this data collection scheme please let your doctor know and your records will not be collected for use in the anonymous research database.  This will not affect your care in any way.

 

If anything to do with the research would require that you provide additional information about yourself you will be contacted by your GP to see if you are willing to take part; you will not be identified in any published results.

 

You have a right to access your health records.  If at any time you would like to know more, or have any concerns about how we use your information, please ask reception for more details.
