Patient Record

Please scroll down to find more information on your patient record, including information on sharing your records, accessing your records and informing the surgery of changes to your contact details or carer status, plus more.

Patient Confidentiality

Everyone 16 years or over needs to contact the surgery for their own results and medical information. Due to patient confidentiality, we cannot give information about any patients 16 years or over to anyone else.

If you would like to give permission for other person(s) to access your medical records, please fill in this form and return it to surgery. We will then add to your notes that you have given written permission for this access. This permission can also be removed at any time by request.

National Data Opt-Out

The staff at this practice record information about you and your health so that you can receive the right care and treatment. We need to record this information, together with the details of the care you receive, because it may be needed if we see you again.

The NHS may use some of this information for other reasons, for example, to help to protect the health of the general public generally, to plan for the future, to train staff and to carry out medical and other health research for the benefit of everyone.

These studies may be performed by academic researchers or commercial companies amongst others. However, no researcher has access to your full details such as your name and address, initials or your full date of birth. The researchers are not given information about the GP nor the practice name, address or post code.

You can choose to stop your confidential patient information being used for research and planning. This is called the National Data Opt-out. If you choose this opt-out, NHS Digital and other health and care organisations will not be able to share any of your personal data with other organisations for research and planning, except in certain situations. For example, when required by law.

If you would like to opt out of this data collection scheme either call 0300 303 5678 or visit The surgery cannot opt-out on your behalf.

Type 1 Opt-Out

The NHS needs data about the patients it treats in order to plan and deliver its services, and to ensure that care and treatment provided is safe and effective. The General Practice Data for Planning and Research data collection will help the NHS to improve health and care services for everyone by collecting patient data that can be used to do this.

If you do not want your identifiable patient data to be shared outside of your GP practice for purposes except for your own care, you can register an opt-out with your GP practice. This is known as a Type 1 Opt-out. This should be done by returning this form to surgery allowing time for processing it. If you have previously registered a Type 1 Opt-out and you would like to withdraw this, you can also use the form to do this. You can also call 0300 303 5678 for a form to be sent out to you.

Only the GP surgery can process your opt-out form. If you choose a Type 1 Opt-out, your GP will not share your data for research and planning. However, NHS Digital will still be able to collect and share data from other healthcare providers, such as hospitals.
