 **NEW** Privacy Notice for patients

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) became law on 24th May 2016. This is a single EU-wide regulation on the protection of confidential and sensitive information. It enters into force in the UK on the 25th May 2018, repealing the Data Protection Act (1998).

Below statement replaces clause 7.8 on the attached Data Privacy Document. (effective 01/02/2019)

 There may be occasions where authorised research facilities would like you to take part in innovations, research, improving services or identifying trends. We work with research companies both academic and commercial for medical research purposes and if a patient does not wish to be involved then they can opt out by letting the practice know either via reception team or emailing the reception email address B83033@kilmenysurgery@nhs.net explaining that they wish to opt out.

Care Navigation

The right care from the right person, first time

When you ring to book an appointment, you might notice our reception team will ask you for a brief outline of how we can help you.

This is because we have introduced something called Care Navigation. It means our

reception team has been trained to ensure they can help you to find the best service for your needs, so you can receive the right care more quickly. Anything you share with our team will be kept confidential.

Through this specialist training, our team will be able to direct you to the most appropriate clinician or service for your needs.

Our reception team will never offer clinical advice. Instead, this new way of working is about offering you the choice to see more appropriate professionals in our practice team or even somewhere else. If they can deal with the problem directly, it will often be quicker and means you may not need to see a GP at all.

 By working this way, it helps to free-up time for GPs to care for patients with complex or

serious health conditions that can only be managed by a doctor. More importantly though, it means people are seen first by the clinician that is best placed to help you with your health needs.

 Helping you to choose

The choice is always yours though. It is completely up to you if you want to share information with our reception team.

You will never be refused a GP appointment but we hope next time you contact our practice and speak with our reception team you will see the value of seeing another healthcare professional if they are able to help.

You can find out more about Care Navigation by taking a look at our frequently asked

questions, by picking up a leaflet or by speaking to a member of our practice team.

The doctors and staff at Oakworth Medical Practice in Oakworth would like to welcome you to our practice.

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.

This is a teaching practice and members of staff will occasionally have students sitting in during consultations. Please inform reception if you would rather not have a trainee doctor or nurse present.

Premises

The surgery is located in the heart of Oakworth and was specifically converted to be a modern General Practice Surgery. Our facilities include disabled parking and access, clean modern consultation rooms, a minor surgery treatment room, a comfortable open plan waiting area with toilet facilities, and a small children's play area.  If you have any special access needs or require assistance please inform reception before you arrive and we will do our utmost to help you.

Research

Modality Partnership participates in medical research projects vital in helping to extend the frontiers of medical science and knowledge. Most of the projects we work on are connected to therapeutic interventions.

We are therefore pleased to give suitable patients the opportunity to participate in relevant studies many of which involve diagnostic tests and treatments which would not otherwise be routinely available.
