We are a fully computerised medical practice and use this to provide a comprehensive recall system for chronic disease, childhood immunisation and screening. All consultations are recorded on computer.
The Orchard Practice is committed to respecting and protecting all patient records and all patient identifiable data held by the practice. We take the issue of information governance very seriously and value the trust you place in us as a practice. We have practices and policies in place to safeguard your personal information that is collated for your treatment at the medical centre.
Freedom of Information
The Freedom of Information Act 2000 obliges the practice to produce a Publication Scheme. A Publication Scheme is a guide to the ‘classes’ of information the practice intends to routinely make available.
We may use your mobile telephone number to send SMS text messages about the surgery. No patient data will be sent via text. If you do not wish to receive text messages from the surgery please let reception know.
