This Privacy Notice explains why the GP Practice collects information about you, how we use it, the conditions under which we may disclose it to others and how we keep it secure.
How is your information used?
The Healthcare professionals who provide you with care maintain records about your health and any treatment or care you have received previously (e.g. NHS Trust, GP Surgery, Walk-in clinic, etc.). These records help to provide you with the best possible healthcare, and are accessible by all members of the practice team – General Practitioners, Nurses, Healthcare Assistants, Pharmacist and administration and reception staff.
NHS health records may be electronic, on paper or a mixture of both, and we use a combination of working practices and technology to ensure that your information is kept confidential and secure.
What type of information is collected from you?

Your records are used to facilitate the healthcare you receive from the practice to ensure care and treatment is delivered in the best possible way. Information held about you may be used to help protect the health of the public and to help us manage and contribute to the wider the NHS. Information may be used within the GP practice for clinical audits to monitor the quality of the service provided.
Some of this information will be held centrally and used for statistical purposes. Where we do this, we take strict measures to ensure that individual patients cannot be identified by redacting this information. Sometimes your information may be requested to be used for research purposes, and the practice will always gain your consent before releasing the information for this purpose.
How do we maintain the confidentiality of your records?

We will only ever use or pass on information about you if others involved in your care have a genuine need for it. We will not disclose your information to any third party without your permission unless there are exceptional circumstances (i.e. life or death situations), where the law requires information to be passed on and / or in accordance with the information sharing principle following Dame Fiona Caldicott’s information sharing review (Information to share or not to share) where “The duty to share information can be as important as the duty to protect patient confidentiality.” This means that health and social care professionals should have the confidence to share information in the best interests of their patients within the framework set out by the Caldicott principles. They should be supported by the policies of their own employers, regulators and professional bodies.

Risk stratification data tools are increasingly being used in the NHS to help determine a person’s risk of suffering a particular condition, preventing an unplanned or (re)admission and identifying a need for preventive intervention. Information about you is collected from a number of sources including NHS Trusts and from this GP Practice.

Please note that you have the right to opt out of your data being used in this way.

What is Health Watch?
It is a new consumer champion created to gather and represent the views of the public. They will make sure that the public views are being taken into account.
How they work?
Health Watch can help deal with any complaint you may have regarding a service you have received from NHS or a Social Care service.
- They are here to help make services better by helping you to shape and improve the services you use.
- They are engaging with people in your community and if you haven't met us yet, please get in touch!
- They are an open organisation and want to make it easy for you to talk to them. They want people from every part of the community to join in.
- If you want to know what they are doing, just ask and they will always tell you!
- They will notice the good and bad things that are happening

How much influence do they have?
By law, the organisations who plan, run and regulate health and social care services have to listen to what they have to say. When they are made aware of failing services they will report it to key national organisations, such as, Care Quality Commission and Central Goverment. The organisation must then submit a public responce the the issues being raised. However, they beleive they can be influential in improving services without the need to enforce statuory powers.

NEW TO THE SURGERY - INR MACHINE
The surgery has invested in a new anticoagulation machine. This means patients that require their INR testing can now have it done at the surgery via a fingerprick test and get the results the same day!
Some patients may still be required to have a full blood sample taken - The nurse will be able to advise you on this.
So far we have had fantastic results and many patients have been very pleased with the new quick and easy service.
