Albert Road Surgery

Information about you and the care you receive is shared, in a secure system, by healthcare staff to support your treatment and care.

It is important that we, the NHS, can use this information to plan and improve services for all patients. We would like to link information from all the different places where you receive care, such as your GP, hospital and community service, to help us provide a full picture. This will allow us to compare the care you received in one area against the care you received in another, so we can see what has worked best.

Information such as your postcode and NHS number, but not your name, will be used to link your records in a secure system, so your identity is protected. Information which does not reveal your identity can then be used by others, such as researchers and those planning health services, to make sure we provide the best care possible for everyone.

You have a choice. If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not have to do anything. If you have any concerns or wish to prevent this from happening, please speak to practice staff or download the opt out form below, complete it and return it to the practice

We need to make sure that you know this is happening and the choices you have.

******************************

* Despite increasing financial pressures on General Practice throughout the NHS, our practice has opted to keep extended opening hours for our patients – did you know we run a late night GP surgery from 6:30pm – 8pm every Wednesday evening?

We hope this helps to deliver easy access to GP appointments for those patients who may be unavailable to attend appointments throughout the day e.g. those people who work.

All appointments are pre-bookable (and to be honest, they often get booked up pretty quickly) but they can be helpful if you want to make a future appointment e.g. a review of your medication in a few weeks time. If you’d like to make a late night appointment please speak to a member of our reception team.
