Healthy Lifestyle has started two new groups which we hope will help and support our patients.

Lost Friends is held on Mondays 1.00-3.00p.m here at the surgery. This group is here to support anyone that has suffered a bereavment. It's a small friendly group aimed at helping each other.

The other group is Breathing Buddies. This is also held on Mondays 3.15-3.45 p.m here at the surgery. If you are a C.O.P.D patient, this is for you! Come along and chat with other patients with the same symptoms and get some support and advise.

Confidentiality & Medical Records

Locked blue folderThe 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.

Should you require information including test results about any person over the age of 16, even if this person is a direct relation to you, then we will always insist on consent from the said person before any information can be relayed to you.  If you need information on a regular basis about anyone else, then to prevent any problems the patient should put their consent in writing for this to be put on their records.
