Noticeboard

From  Monday 3rd July 2017, repeat prescription requests will be processed by the NHS Prescription Ordering Direct Service and the practice will no longer take requests for repeat prescriptions from your pharmacy. You will need to phone the POD service on 0300 131 1100 to order your medicines instead of phoning or visiting your pharmacy to make an order. The POD will arrange for your prescription to be sent electronically to a pharmacy of your choice and dispensed as normal. This is a pilot service being run by DGS & Swale CCG’s for 12 months, alongside other GP Practices. This will help to deliver improved care to patients and reduce medicines waste. The CCG, on behalf of the practice, will process your personal data (with your consent) in order to review and manage your repeat prescription.”


 We are now offering  telephone consultations only from 8am-12am daily to speak to a GP/Nurse/Paramedic Practitioner

Patient Advice

Your Data Matters to the NHS

Information about your health and care helps us to improve your individual care, speed up diagnosis, plan your local services and research new treatments. The NHS is committed to keeping patient information safe and always being clear about how it is used.

How your data is used

Information about your individual care such as treatment and diagnoses is collected about you whenever you use health and care services. It is also used to help us and other organisations for research and planning such as research into new treatments, deciding where to put GP clinics and planning for the number of doctors and nurses in your local hospital.  It is only used in this way when there is a clear legal basis to use the information to help improve health and care for you, your family and future generations.

Wherever possible we try to use data that does not identify you, but sometimes it is necessary to use your confidential patient information.

You have a choice

You do not need to do anything if you are happy about how your information is used. If you do not want your confidential patient information to be used for research and planning, you can choose to opt out securely online or through a telephone service. You can change your mind about your choice at any time.

Will choosing this opt-out affect your care and treatment?

No, choosing to opt out will not affect how information is used to support your care and treatment. You will still be invited for screening services, such as screenings for bowel cancer.

What do you need to do?

If you are happy for your confidential patient information to be used for research and planning, you do not need to do anything.
