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.
Named Accountable GP for all patients
All our patients now have a named accountable GP. The named accountable GP is responsible for patients’ overall care at the practice. If you would like to know who that GP is please contact the surgery. If you have a preference as to which GP that is the practice will make every effort to accommodate this request.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS
HOW INFORMATION ABOUT YOU HELPS THE NHS TO PROVIDE BETTER CARE
Confidential Information from your medical records can be used by the NHS to improve the services offered so we can provide the best possible care for everyone
This information along with your postcode and NHS number but NOT your name,are sent to a secure system where it can be linked with other health information.
This allows those planning NHS services or carrying out medical research to use information from different parts of the NHS in a way which does not identify you.
YOU DO HAVE A CHOICE
If you are happy for your information to be used this way then YOU DO NOT NEED TO DO ANYTHING
If you do have concerns or wish to prevent this from happening then please speak to a member of our staff or ask at reception for an information leaflet 'How information about you helps us to provide better care'
Our Practice Manager will also be happy to discuss any concerns with you if you wish
