The Eastney Practice
The Doctors are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the menu on the right hand side.
To ensure you receive the right care we may share information about you and your care with other health professionals. We will only use or pass on identifiable information about you with other health professionals who are involved in the direct provision of your care. They will ask your permission to see your information when they first see you. We will not disclose your identifiable information to anyone else without your permission unless in exceptional circumstances (i.e. life or death situations), or where the law requires it.
The NHS currently uses your information in an anonymous and safe way to:
- protect the health of the public
- help us anticipate, plan and provide care
- audit and monitor the quality of services provided
By registering with this practice you are consenting to your information being shared.
However, you can ask for your information not to be shared outside of the practice. Please complete the information sharing opt-out form if you do not wish your information to be shared. Please look under the link DATA SHARING. If you decide to opt out it will not affect your entitlement to care. However, it may result in the delivery of your care being less efficient as clinicians will not see your full medical history. If you have any concerns about how your information is shared or held, please contact the Practice Manager.
