Temporary changes to the Practice – from Monday 6 April 2020 for 12 weeks


As you are aware the NHS is currently dealing with the Coronovirus pandemic and in order to help us to help you, the practice needs to make some temporary changes to continue to provide healthcare and advice when you and your family need it most.


From Monday 6 April, you will NOT be able to walk into this practice any longer.


Should you need to speak to your practice, you will need to call the practice 0121 554 1812


If you have a medical problem you will be assessed by a GP/Practice Nurse over the telephone.


If they decide you need to be examined they will make an appointment for you at Tanhouse Clinic, Hamstead Road, Great Barr.


The NHS is limiting Face-to-Face consultations due to Covid-19.


It is important that we all do our bit to support the NHS locally as it continues to see and treat you, your family and friends.




Sharing Patient Data

YOUR CARE CONNECTED


This was introduced in April, 2016 and is being implemented across Birmingham, Sandwell and Solihull. This allows doctors, nurses and other registered healthcare professionals working in secondary care to view information from a patient’s GP records with the patient’s permission. They can view demographics, diagnoses, medication, allergies, investigations, vaccinations, referrals, end of life wishes and safeguarding concerns. When a patient visits a participating secondary care organisation, the treating clinician will ask patients permission before accessing any information.
For more information please visit MidlandsYourCareConnected.nhs.uk or call 0333 150 3388.
If you wish to allow access to Your Care Connected you do not need to do anything.
If you wish to opt out from Your Care Connected you can collect an opt out form from reception or visit – MidlandsYourCareConnected.nhs.uk


PUBLIC HEALTH ENGLAND


The practice will share information with Public Health England from time to time for the purposes of public health.

From 2.12.16 for the Latent TB Screening Programme, TB related information will be shared with Public Health England. This information will help them see how well they are reaching people at risk of latent TB and helps Public Health England to monitor LTBI uptake and evaluate the effectiveness of this programme.
