Where to find the latest information
Public Health England blog:
At Stamford Hill Group Practice we take pride in offering the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We run many clinics for chronic disease care and offer a wide variety of other medical services such as antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery and childhood vaccinations.
We have ten consulting rooms, two nurses' treatment rooms, offices for the practice manager, deputy practice manager, assistant manager, reception manager, secretarial and administration offices.
We also have an in-house team of Health Visitors, as well as a visiting physiotherapist, child psychologist and diabetic nurse specialist.
All our public areas are wheelchair accessible. Our practice booklet is available in large font and it is also available in braille. We have a hearing loop fitted in reception and a portable loop that can be used in consulting rooms and home visits.
How information about you helps us 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 have a choice,
If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not have to do anything.
If you have any concerns or wish to prevent this from happening, please speak to practice staff or ask at reception for a copy of the leaflet “How information about you helps us to provide better care”.
More information including the leaflet can be found here
www.nhs.uk/caredata & in the Important Information link on the right.
