Information in the NHS, better information means better care.

Sharing information in the NHS helps ensure that the quality and safety of services is consistent across the country. It can also highlight different diseases and conditions that may require more NHS investment. This is an opportunity for each of us to help the NHS provide high quality care for all.

You can find out more about how information is used for purposes beyond your direct care, the benefits this bring and the choices you have available to you by watching our short video.

Plan to meet 2014-15 Contractual Requirement for patient online services

This practice currently offers patients’ facilities to book, view, amend, cancel, print appointments online, view blood results and immunisations.

This practice currently offers the facility for all patients to order online, view and print a list of their repeat prescriptions or medicines and appliances.

This practice can now offer patients facilities to view on line, export or print any summary information from their record, relating to medications, allergies, adverse reactions and any other items agreed between the practice and individual patient, from 31st March 2016 date, subject to the availability of supporting guidance, NHS GP systems and software.  Patients wishing to take advantage of this should contact reception.  You will require photo ID before the service can be set up and we reserve the right to decline a request for full access where the GP deems it may be harmful.


This practice uses GP2GP to transfer patient records when patients move practice.


This practice uploads information daily to the Summary Care Record system (for those patients who have not opted out).


We publicise and promote our online services to our practice patients through the practice website, practice waiting room leaflets, posters and the Patient Participation Group  .


In addition to the above, our plan of practice will follow the plan below:
