CONFIDENTIALITY AND ACCESS TOYOUR MEDICAL RECORDS
Your medical records are confidential and will not be discussed with anyone else without your written permission. The practice complies with the Data Protection Act. We ask you for information about yourself so that you can receive proper care and treatment. We keep this information, together with details of your care, because it may be needed if we see you again.
We may use some of this information for other reasons; for example, to help us protect the health of the public generally and to see the NHS runs efficiently, plans for the future, trains its staff, pays its bills and can account for its actions. Information may also be needed to help educate tomorrow's clinical staff and to carry out medical and other health research for the benefit of everyone.
Sometimes the law requires us to pass on information, for example, to notify a birth.
The NHS Central Register for England and Wales contains basic personal details of all patients registered with a general practitioner. The register does not contain medical information.
Everyone working for the NHS has a legal duty to keep information about you confidential.
You may be receiving care from other people as well as the NHS. So that we can all work together for your benefit we may need to share some information about you.
We only ever use or pass on information about you if people have a genuine need for it in your and everyone's interests. Whenever we can we shall remove details which identify you.
The sharing of some types of very sensitive personal information is strictly controlled by law. Anyone who receives information from us is also under a legal duty to keep it confidential.

This practice contributes anonymous patient data to a database used for health care research purposes. The practice receives a nominal fee and training from the company aggregating the data to help improve quality in its computer records.
The company holding the anonymous data will be providing the data to authorised researchers for a data fee. The data collection scheme has been approved by the South East Multicentre Research Ethics Committee. The Committee will also be overseeing all research conducted on the data.
The database will hold data on millions of patients, and no patient will be traceable to anyone outside the practice.
The doctors and nurses will discuss and recommend a choice of contraception. For routine 'pill checks' make an appointment with one of our practice nurses (not with a GP). However, you will need to reorder your prescription from your doctor's receptionist. The practice nurses cannot give you a prescription.
We recommend influenza vaccination for the elderly and patients considered at special risk. Please enquire during September.
A British Medical Association-recommended fee will be charged for the completion of non-NHS forms and medical examinations. These include private certificates, passport forms, holiday cancellation forms, insurance forms (all types including private healthcare), employment, HGV and elderly driver medicals etc. We also carry out medicals for insurance companies, PCV and LGV. Please contact reception for appointments.
MOLD COMMUNITY HOSPITAL
Mold is extremely fortunate in having the first purpose-built community hospital in Wales. This attractive building (which has an award-winning design) is situated just a few minutes' walk from the surgery. All the partners have access to beds in the hospital via the North Wales NHS Trust, as well as to x-ray, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, day hospital, blood tests, nebuliser therapy etc. Minor operations are undertaken by all the partners. The Hospital League of Friends has lavishly furbished the hospital, and is always happy to receive further donations to its fund.
Please attend the reception desk with your medical card, if possible. You will require your NHS number if you have been registered previously with the NHS as well as your passport or other ID and proof of address e.g. mortgage or rent agreement or a utility bill. Patients coming from abroad and wishing to register permanently for the first time will need to provide appropriate documentation eg work permit, passport, entry visa etc. You will be offered a new patient medical with a health care assistant who will check your blood pressure, height, weight etc.
Please bring a urine sample to this consultation. If any patient changes their name or address they should notify their doctor's receptionist in order that we can change our records. You will be registered with the practice as a whole rather than with a specific GP but you can ask to see a specific GP and we will do our best to accommodate you although it may not always be possible.
