CONFIDENTIALITY OF MEDICAL RECORDS
As a practice we will hold your medical records confidentially and securely. However, to ensure that all NHS GP services operate to the recommended standards, various bodies exist to regulate and oversee our activity. These include the Care Quality Commission, NHS England and the professional regulators, such as the General Medical Council. These organisations may need to access patient data to fulfil their regulatory role and we are obliged to cooperate with their inquiries.
PATIENT ONLINE ACCESS
You are now able to order repeat prescriptions and book appointments via this website. If you do not have a password, please contact the surgery to find out what you need to do to register for these services.
You can also view certain aspects of your medical records online. Online access to medical records will enable you to view your medications, allergies and allergic reactions and also immunisations. For access you will need to register by completing a form and bringing in photo ID. If you don't already have a password for other online services you will be given one.
Please note: staff can refuse or withdraw access if they have any concerns.
