Did you know we need a letter of authority/consent to share medical information?

Patient confidentiality is very important to us and we will not share your medical information without your consent.

Have you ever thought about who will help you with your appointments or medical information as you age or if you became unable to deal with things yourself?

If you wish us to be able to discuss your medical information with a family member or friend you can complete a letter of authority/consent. This can be done at any time in advance of you needing it and may help relieve the stress of your family member if you suddenly became unable to deal with things yourself.

If this is something that you think you would like to do please ask for a form at reception.


Following the CQC visit to our Practice in February 2015, we have received an offical rating of GOOD.
