Are you aware that your personal medical information that you share with your GP or other healthcare professional is about to be extracted and stored on a computer outside of the control of this practice where the practice will have no say on who has access to that information.  If you are happy for NHS England to direct the HSCIC to extract, store and manage/use your personal information then you need do NOTHING as the information will be automatically taken from your GP's computer system.

If  you don't wish your information to be extracted then you MUST inform your GP who will provide an opt out form, thus blocking the uploading of your identifiable and personal information to the HSCIC.  PLEASE PICK UP A LEAFLET FROM RECEPTION OUTLINING THESE IMPORTANT CHANGES TO HOW WE HANDLE PERSONAL DATA.

Out of Hours Service update:  Due to the high demand in the use of the Out Of Hours Service, the new system is unable to cope with the high volume of calls, therfore 111 has been disarmed until further notice.  If you require the Out of Hours Service please ring 0161 763 8940.

 New Tiriage System now in place DAILY for NON URGENT CASES with qualified prescribing/referring clinician.

 WELCOME TO ALL NEW PATIENTS AT EDGWORTH MEDICAL CENTRE & THE SURGERY AT EGERTON & DUNSCAR. 

Thank you from all staff
