Complaints & Comments Leaflet
You are now registered with the practice rather than a specific doctor, but many patients prefer to see the same doctor each time. You are welcome to consult any of the doctors within the practice, even if he/she is not your registered doctor.
Should you move home or wish to change practice for any reason, your medical card gives information on the steps to be taken. If you have any difficulties the appropriate Primary Care Trust can advise you.
For the first time in the history of the NHS, the constitution brings together in one place details of what staff, patients and the public can expect from the National Health Service. It also explains what you can do to help support the NHS, help it work effectively, and help ensure that its resources are used responsibly.
The Constitution sets out your rights as an NHS patient. These rights cover how patients access health services, the quality of care you’ll receive, the treatments and programmes available to you, confidentiality, information and your right to complain if things go wrong.

Summary Care Records (SCR) are an electronic record of important patient information, created from GP medical records. They can be seen and used by authorised staff in other areas of the health and care system involved in the patient's direct care.
Please visit NHS digital website for further information
The way our computer system works and shares your patient information has changed.
Starting March 2014 you will have more control over who has access to your record.
We use a system that is widely used in this area and across England. This system will give us a facility (The Enhanced Data Sharing Model - EDSM) to share your health record with other health providers involved in your care.
You will be able to choose whether to share these full medical details with other health provider units (for example district nurses) or not.
Many organisations may use SystmOne including some GP practices, out of hours services, children's services, community services and some hospitals. Sharing your health record will help us deliver the best level of care for you.
You have two choices which allow you to control how your record is shared. You can change these choices at any time.
NOTE: When being seen by any other service/organisation which uses SystmOne, you should be asked your consent to View and or Contributeto your medical record. It is that organisation's responsibility to seek explicit consent.
This controls whether your information recorded at this practice can be shared with other healthcare providers.
This determines whether or not this practice can view information in your record that has been entered by other services who are providing care for you or who may provide care for you in the future (that you have consented to share out).
You are receiving care from three services, your GP, a district nurse and a smoking clinic. You want your GP and district nurse to share information with each other and you want both of them to know your progress at the smoking clinic. However, you don't want the smoking clinic to see any of your other medical information.
The GP can share information IN and OUT
The district nurse can share IN and OUT
The smoking clinic cannot share IN but can share OUT.
In very exceptional circumstances your information may be shared without your permission - for example if your life is at risk or you are unconscious. Use of this is monitored.
For more information please speak to a member of staff or use the contact form on this website.
