Important Information about your Health Records

NHS England are now able to automatically extract personally identifiable information about you from our computer system, using its powers under the Health and Social Care Act 2012. At the end of January 2014 all households in England will receive an information leaflet called "Better information means better care". Please read the leaflet carefully. If you have not received the leaflet you can read it here.

If you do not want your details to be extracted, complete one of the opt out forms which can be obtained from Reception or downloaded from the Care Data page. Please note Patients who have opted out of the Summary Care Record (SCR) will still need to complete an opt out form.

 

 

 

writingForms Requiring Signature

The number of forms Doctors are being asked to complete is growing rapidly. In some cases someone other than a Doctor can sign the form for you.

The Doctor is only allowed to sign a passport application if he has known you personally for two years.

Private Medical Insurance claim forms can be signed by your specialist.

Certificates for school should be signed by a parent.

Certificates for sickness for periods of less than a week should usually be signed by the patient themselves using form SC2. A medical certificate is not normally required.

 Holiday cancellation insurance does not need a Doctors letter - it needs an official claim form obtainable from your insurers (A Doctor usually does need to fill part of it in).

If a Doctor is asked to do any of the above, we will gladly comply - but will charge a fee.

Examinations for Life Insurance companies will also need a special appointment. The fee in this case is usually payable by the Life Insurance Company concerned.

Other Non NHS Service

Medical examinations for HGV and PSV Licences and for pre employment are not paid for by the NHS.

Some insurance forms such as the certificates for Elderly Drivers Insurance appear deceptively simple, but need a full medical examination for their completion.

Examinations of this nature take time and therefore a fee has to be charged.

A special appointment will be required and the fee is payable by the patient at the time of the examination.
