IMPORTANT CHANGES TO YOUR MEDICAL RECORDS
NHS England would like to improve the quality of care and health services for all. By using information about the care you have received, those involved in providing care and health services can see how well they are doing and where improvements need to be made.
As a patient you may receive care and treatment from a number of places such as your GP practice, hospitals and community services. By bringing this information together, NHS England can compare the care provided in one area with the care provided in another, so they can see what worked best.
They will use information such as your postcode and NHS number to link your records in a secure system so your identity is protected. Information may be released to approved researchers, if this is allowed by law and meets the strict rules that are in place to protect your privacy.
If you are happy for your information to be shared you do not need to do anything.
If you are not happy for information about you to be shared, please speak to a member of staff at the surgery.

Are you a carer?
If you look after a relative, friend or neighbour who .....
has a mental health problem
has a physical disability
has a learning disability
has an alcohol/drug addiction
has HIV or aids
is elderly or frail
..... then you are a carer
If so please let us know. When you are a carer it is often difficult to have a real break because someone depends on you to look after them. You can get tired and run down, and your health may possibly suffer. Telling your GP can help him/her to support you and make sure that you yourself get the right sort of care. You are important too, you know
See the appointments page for full details of our opening and consulting times.
