Noticeboard

Did you know that since April 2015, you don't have to wait on the phone to speak to your GP surgery?  Just like online banking, you can look at your GP records on a computer, a tablet or a smartphone, using a website or an app.  You can choose to: Book and cancel appointments, order repeat prescriptions online and look at part of your GP records online.  Ask at reception on how to sign up for these services.


Named GP - with effect from 1 April 2015 all patients will have a named GP who will have overall responsiblity for the care and support provided for them.  This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the Practice as you currently do.  If you wish to know who your named GP is please ask our Reception Team, GP or Practice Nurse.

ConfidentialityThe practice complies with Data Protection and Access to Medical Records legislation. Identifiable information about you will be shared with others in the following circumstances:

  • To provide further medical treatment for you e.g. from district nurses and hospital services.
  • To help you get other services e.g. from the social work department. This requires your consent.
  • When we have a duty to others e.g. in child protection cases anonymised patient information will also be used at local and national level to help the Health Board and Government plan services e.g. for diabetic care.

If you do not wish anonymous information about you to be used in such a way, please let us know.

Reception and administration staff require access to your medical records in order to do their jobs. These members of staff are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the medical staff.
