We ask you for personal information so that you can receive appropriate care and treatment. This information is recorded on computer and we are registered under the Data Protection Act. The practice will ensure that patient confidentiality is maintained at all times by all members of the practice team. However, for the effective functioning of a multi-disciplinary team it is sometimes necessary that medical information about you is shared between members of the team.

Mobile Phone Policy

The practice provides an SMS Text Messaging Service. This service will be used for appointment reminders and other significant reminders such as flu clinic alerts. To be able to receive SMS text alerts you will need to make sure the surgery has your up to date mobile phone number. If you are unsure which number we have, just let us know the number you would like us to hold.

To update your mobile number, read our mobile phone policy, or opt out of the service you can download our mobile phone leaflet here and forward it to the surgery or hand it in at reception.
