Change of personal details

If you move or change your name or telephone number please help us by informing us so your records can be updated. Failure to do so could cause delays or prevent us from contacting you or a relative in an emergency.

Medical records / Electronic Health Records

All patient records are recorded on computer and some data is held in paper files. We comply with the relevant Data Protection Act and all staff are trained with regard to their responsibilities.

The Electronic Health Record is a new system for storing information about your health. It will enable NHS staff from any hospital or surgery to retreive the latest data on your Health in the event of an emergency. For more details please pick up a leaflet from the surgery.

All Health bodies are covered by the Freedom of Information Act which gives all interested parties a general right of access to all types of recorded information.
