How The Practice Uses Personal Health Information
The people who care for you use your records to:
- Provide a good basis for all health decisions made in consultation with you and other health care professionals.
- Deliver appropriate health care.
- Make sure your health care is safe and effective.
- Work effectively with others providing you with care.

We strongly support the NHS policy on zero tolerance. Anyone attending the surgery who abuses the GPs, staff or other patients be it verbally, physically or in any threatening manner whatsoever, will risk removal from the practice list. In extreme cases we may summon the police to remove offenders from the practice premises.
Freedom Of Information – Publication Scheme
The Freedom of Information Act 2000 obliges the practice to produce a Publication Scheme. A Publication Scheme is a guide to the ‘classes’ of information the practice intends to routinely make available.
