MAKING HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE INFORMATION ACCESSIBLE
The Accessible Information Standard will come into force from the 31st July 2016 across health and social care in England. For more information, please access this link
The website provides patients with useful information about the surgery. If there is anything else you would like us to include, please let us know.
We hope that information in our newsletters (access via the links above) and in the "Useful Information" section is helpful and of interest.
Prescriptions can now be ordered online, via the link on the surgery website, but patients need to come into the surgery to be given access codes before ordering prescriptions for the first time – please bring ID with you (eg passport, birth certificate etc).
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR PATIENT RECORDS HELD AT THIS SERVICE
Your doctor will offer you the option of sharing or not sharing your records at the appropriate consultation and will record your choice accordingly. You can always alter your decision at a later date if you change your mind
HOW INFORMATION ABOUT YOU HELPS US TO PROVIDE BETTER CARE
NHS England is commissioning a modern data service from the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) on behalf of the entire health and social care system. Known as care.data, this programme will build on the existing data services such as the Hospital Episodes Statistics (HES) service, which was launched in 1989, and expand it to provide linked data, that will eventually cover all care settings, both in and outside of hospital.
Under the Health and Social Care Act 2012, NHS England has the power to direct the HSCIC to collect information from all providers of NHS care, including general practices. The specification of the data to be extracted by GP practices were considered by the Joint GP IT Committee of the British Medical Association and the Royal College of General Practitioners, as well as an independent advisory group.
The General Practice Extraction Service (GPES) will be used to extract GP data each month. Initially the data will cover the period from April 2013 onwards. The identifiers to be extracted are: NHS number, date of birth, postcode, and gender which will allow patients’ GP data to be linked to their hospital data. No free text will be extracted, only coded information about referrals, NHS prescriptions and other clinical data.

Your GP practice holds copies of your patient health record electronically and in paper format. Both contain the healthcare information about you that your GP needs including your medical history, medications, allergies, immunisations and vaccinations.
If you have previously registered with a different GP in England, upon registering at this practice your electronic health record will, where possible, be transferred automatically from your previous practice through the use of an NHS system called GP2GP.
