Access to notes
Doctors and Nurses have access to your medical records.
Practice staff handle medical records: they do, however, sign a confidentiality form when joining the practice.
Unless we have your written consent nobody else will have access to your medical records.
Violent / Abusive Patients
We strongly support the NHS policy on Zero Tolerance. Anyone attending the surgery who abuses the GPs, staff or other patients be it verbally, physically or in any threatening manner whatsoever, will risk removal from the practice list. In extreme cases we may summon the police to remove offenders from the practice premises.
Your NHS number is your unique identifying number which means there is no confusion regarding names and dates of birth when presenting or contacting any NHS provider organsation.
