HEALTH RESEARCH

consultation1The staff at this practice record information about you and your health so that you can receive the right care and treatment.  We need to record this information, together with the details of the care you receive, 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 to protect the health of the general public generally, to plan for the future, to train staff and to carry out medical and other health research for the benefit of everyone.

We are currently involved in research studies for which we provide anonymised information from patients' notes.  You cannot be identified in any way from this information as none of your personal details are given to researchers.  Individual patients' records are added into a much larger anonymous database, containing records from millions of patients across the UK.  This information is used by researchers outside this practice.  The database to which we contribute anonymised records is known as The Health Improvement Network (THIN)1.  This database is managed by a company outside the NHS which does not have access to your personal details, only to anonymous medical records.  The data are used for research into such topics as drug safety, disease patterns, prescribing patterns, health economics and public health.  Many of these studies provide useful information to medical staff on diseases, the use of drugs or outcomes of disease or treatment.

These studies may be performed by academic researchers or commercial companies amongst others.  However, no researcher has access to your full details such as your name and address, initials or your full date of birth.  The researchers are not given information on the GP nor the practice name, address or post code.

If you would like to opt out of this data collection scheme, please let your doctor know and no data from your records will be collected or used in research.  This will not affect your care in any way.

If anything to do with the research would require that you provide additional information about yourself, you will be contacted to see if you are willing to take part; you will not be identified in any published results.

Note that you have a right of access to your health records.  If at any time you would like to know more, or have any concerns about how we use your information, you can speak to Martyn Keane, the practice manager, telephone number: 390413.

TRAINING FOR FAMILY DOCTORS

Since 1983, we have been a training practice for the post-graduate education of doctors completing their vocational training prior to becoming GPs. During their 6 or 12 month  attachment, these vocational GP registrars work alongside the partners gaining experience in family medicine. GP registrars are fully qualified experienced doctors  who have already undertaken several years of hospital posts. Occasionally patients may be asked whether they wish to consent to their consultation with the GP registrar being recorded on video tape to facilitate GP registrar training.
