 Holt Medical Practice

General Practitioner Registrar

 
We are fortunate in being selected as a Training Practice which means we may also have an assistant doctor with us who is planning to go into General Practice.  These appointments are usually for six months but can sometimes be up to a year.  We benefit greatly from these doctors' recent hospital experience, so please accept them as one of us.


Medical Students

 
As a teaching practice, patients may also meet medical students in the surgery or accompanying the doctor on their calls.  These students are going through a very important part of their medical training and your co-operation is extremely valuable and much appreciated.  However, no intrusion on the privacy of the consultation will take place against the wishes of the patient.

 

Video Recording

 
As a training practice video recordings are sometimes made of consultations.  These are made for teaching purposes only.  Video recordings are only done with your consent and you do have the right to refuse.  However, we would stress that all aspects of general practice, including training, are governed by rules of strict confidentiality. 
No examinations are filmed.

Medical Records


We need to hold personal information about you on our computer system and in paper records to help us to look after your health needs.

 

Please help to keep your record up to date by informing us of any changes to your circumstances.

 

Doctors and staff in the practice have access to your medical records to enable them to do their jobs.  Your doctor is responsible for their accuracy and safe-keeping. 

From time to time, it may be necessary to share information with others involved in your care.  Anyone with access to your record is properly trained in confidentiality issues and is governed by both a legal and contractual duty to keep your details private.

 

All information about you is held securely and appropriate safeguards are in place to prevent accidental loss.

 

In some circumstances we may be required by law to release your details to statutory or other official bodies, for example if a court order is presented, or in the case of public health issues.  In other circumstances you may be required to give written consent before information is released – such as for medical reports for insurance, solicitors etc.

 

To ensure your privacy, we will not disclose information over the telephone or fax unless we are sure that we are talking to you.

 

Information will not be disclosed to family, friends, or spouses unless we have prior written consent, and we do not leave messages with others.

 

You have a right to see your records if you wish.  Please ask at reception if you would like further details and our patient information leaflet.  An appointment will be required. In some circumstances a fee may be payable.

 

Please let us know immediately if you change your:

 

  • Name
  • Address
  • Telephone number (including mobile)

 

To change your name or if we have to amend your date of birth on our records we will need to see and take a copy of a legal document e.g. Passport, birth/marriage certificate or drivers licence.  This information is very important for the surgery to have, particularly if we need to contact you in the case of an emergency.

 

Confidentiality

 

Computerisation of all medical records can produce many benefits for preventative medicine and prescribing.  All records are entirely confidential and we aim to keep them fully up to date.  All computer records are protected under the terms of the Data Protection Act.  Information held on the computer may be used by authorised clinical personnel for research.  Holt Medical Practice operates the Summary Care Record and the Electronic Data Sharing initiatives if you wish to opt out of either of these please fill in the apropriate form linked below and hand it in at reception.
