Noticeboard

When We Are Closed    - Call 111


In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.


 

Third Party Consent

We are required by law (with only a few very specific exceptions) to maintain the confidentiality of our patient's medical record. This can cause the people trying to act on behalf of the patient to think that we are being obstructive, but that is not the case.


We therefore will only interact with people other than the patient concerned when signed consent is maintain from the patient to do so. It is important that you give very serious consideration to giving your consent for someone else to interact with us on your behalf. There have been cases elsewhere when, for example, parents have discovered things about their adult child's medical history which the son or daughter never wanted their parents to know.


You can choose how much access you would like your nominated third party to have to your records.


Patients can nominate as many people as they wish to discuss matters on their behalf. Patients can withdraw consent at any point.


If you would like to nominate a third party to discuss matters on your behalf, please complete our third party consent form and return it to us. Third Party Consent Form
