Should a patient require details of his/her medical records, a request form for access is required. Please speak to one of our Receptionists for the Access forms & details of charges.
We fully comply with the Data Protection Act 1998. Everyone working in the NHS has a legal duty to maintain the highest level of confidentiality about patient information. All employees have access to this information in relation to their role. Information may be shared, in confidence, with other NHS organisations in the interests of patient care. Disclosure of identifiable patient information to any other outside agencies will only be given after receiving written permission from the patient.
Freedom of Information
The Practice works within the legislation to provide information to enquiring persons and organisations so that the privacy of our patients is protected.
Our Receptionists are here to help you. They have a busy job to do and will sometimes need to ask you more details about your problems in order to do their work properly. They will always treat what you say in strict confidence.
Summary Care Record
Your Summary Care Record will contain important information about any medicines you are taking, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines that you have had.
Giving healthcare staff access to this information can prevent mistakes being made when caring for you in an emergency or when your GP practice is closed.
Your Summary Care Record will also include your name, address, date of birth and your unique NHS Number to help identify you correctly.
You may want to add other details about your care to your Summary Care Record. This will only happen if you ask for the information to be included. You should discuss your wishes with the healthcare staff treating you.

You can choose not to have a Summary Care Record. You need to let your GP practice know by filling in and returning an opt-out form.
Violence or abuse against any member of the Practice team will not be tolerated. Staff are entitled to work in a safe environment. Any incidents of violence will be reported to the Police and NHS North Central London and will result in the patient being removed from the Practice list.
