Freedom of Information - Publication Scheme

 

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 obliges the practice to produce a Publication Scheme. A Publication Scheme is a guide to the ‘classes’ of information the practice intends to routinely make available. Further details can be obtained from www.foi.nhs.uk

 

Your Responsibilities As Patients

 

Using Our Services

 

Please do what you can to avoid wasting the doctor's time. Do not come with minor coughs and colds or tummy bugs which do not require a doctor's help. A chemist can advise on simple measures and over-the-counter remedies. Try not to come to the doctor with problems which are not all medical. Doctors are not lawyers, financial advisors or housing experts.

 

If you cannot keep your appointment, please cancel it. It may then be given to someone else rather than wasted.

 

If you know your problem requires a nurse's attention only, please book an appointment with the nurse rather than using up an appointment with the doctor.

 

PLEASE:

  • do not abuse our services - in particular, do not ask for home visits whenyou are able to travel to the surgery.
  • do not call the doctor out after hours for routine matters or at night forproblems which could easily wait until the morning.
  • take as much responsibility as possible for your own health. Follow advice from the doctor or nurse. Take medication properly, keep follow-up appointments and attend for screening procedures. Use the proper re-order form to request a repeat prescription. Try not to abuse your body - think about your lifestyle.
  • help the receptionists to help you. Do not mislead them by making a non urgent matter seem like an emergency. It is unfair on the patients who really are emergencies. Please be sure to attend appointments made for you at the hospital, unless you no longer need to, in which case inform both us and the hospital. It is estimated that thousands of pounds are wasted each year by patients who fail to keep appointments.
  •  let us know of any changes of name or address.

Patient Confidentiality and Data Protection

 

We ask you for personal information so that you can receive appropriate care and treatment. This information is recorded on computer and we are registered under the Data Protection Act. The practice will ensure that patient confidentiality is maintained at all times by all members of the practice team. However, for the effective functioning of a multi-disciplinary team it is sometimes necessary that medical information about you is shared between members of the practice team.

 

Summary Care Record

 

Summary Care Records is an electronic record of important information about your health that will be available to healthcare staff providing your NHS care in England. This mean if you have an accident or become ill and need urgent advice or treatment outside of your normal GP surgery the clinicians treating you can have immediate access to important information about you. You can get more information from the Information Line on 0845 603 8510 or the website www.nhscarerecords.nhs.uk. Please let the receptionist know if you wish to OPT OUT.
