Looking after you and your family – How ready are you?
National Data Opt -Out
The national date-opt was made available to the general public on the same day as GDPR went live, 25th May 2018. It allows patients to choose whether they want their confidential patient information to be used for purposes beyond their individual care and treatment, such as for clinical audit and research purposes. Patients that wish to opt-out of this, are required to complete a notification on NHS Digital see link below, unfortunately this cannot be recorded via the GP Surgery.
NHS - Your Data Matters
General Data Protection Regulations
As of 25th May 2018, new data protection regulations are being introduced. Keeping your data safe and secure is our top priority. The changes won't alter the way we use and protect your personal information, but it will make it easier for you to find out how we use it.
There is no action that you need to take. However, the surgery has produced a 'Privacy Notice' to give you more information on how we use your information. This is linked below.

Improved Access Appointments
Local Practices will now be able to offer more appointments on evenings that we hope are convenient to you. If there isn’t an appointment available at Kingswood Health Centre when you want to book one, then you may be offered an appointment at another surgery close by.
The doctor, nurse or healthcare assistant (HCA) who sees you, wherever your appointment is, will have access to your patient record, as long as you have agreed to this.
This service is supported by One Care and we expect it to help patients who find it difficult to attend their GP surgery during the current opening hours. It is currently being undertaken throughout 2017/18 on Monday (at Close Farm Surgery), Tuesday (at Cadbury Heath Healthcare) and Wednesday Evenings (at Kingswood Health Centre).
Improved Access to Physiotherapy Appointment
Kingswood Health Centre is pleased to let patients know of a new service available. From January 2018, If you ring the surgery with an acute joint, muscle of spinal problem that you have had for less than six weeks, you may now be offered a face to face physiotherapy appointment at another local surgery within a week of making contact with the surgery. These appointments are being held out of our core hours during the week and on Saturday and Sundays.
