We now have a new telephone system in place, if you do not wish to stay on the line but want to keep your place in the queue, you can do so by requesting an automatic call back.

We would like to thank our patients who have been brilliant and adapted really well to the recent changes and apologise for any delay that may have been caused when contacting the Surgery by telephone, this has been a very difficult time for everybody and we appreciate your understanding during this time.

We are actively recalling patients on disease management registers to undertake their annual reviews. It is important that you attend these appointments so we can ensure we are providing you with high quality care and follow on management plans.

We have now got a separate telephone line to deal with these specific appointments 01302 986111, this line is available Monday to Friday between 9am and 4pm.

Gentle reminder: If you no longer require your booked appointment please be courteous and cancel so that another patient requiring medical help can utilise the appointment you no longer require.

Please, please only attend A&E if you have a medical emergency. This is not a service for minor presenting ailments.

All the staff at ASA Medical Group would like to thank our patients for their understanding and patience during these challenging times.

 

 

 

Data Choices

Your Data Matters to the NHS

Information about your health and care helps us to improve your individual care, speed up diagnosis, plan your local services and research new treatments. The NHS is committed to keeping patient information safe and always being clear about how it is used.

How your data is used

Information about your individual care such as treatment and diagnoses is collected about you whenever you use health and care services. It is also used to help us and other organisations for research and planning such as research into new treatments, deciding where to put GP clinics and planning for the number of doctors and nurses in your local hospital.  It is only used in this way when there is a clear legal basis to use the information to help improve health and care for you, your family and future generations.

Wherever possible we try to use data that does not identify you, but sometimes it is necessary to use your confidential patient information.

You have a choice

You do not need to do anything if you are happy about how your information is used. If you do not want your confidential patient information to be used for research and planning, you can choose to opt out securely online or through a telephone service. You can change your mind about your choice at any time.

Will choosing this opt-out affect your care and treatment?

No, choosing to opt out will not affect how information is used to support your care and treatment. You will still be invited for screening services, such as screenings for bowel cancer.

What do you need to do?

If you are happy for your confidential patient information to be used for research and planning, you do not need to do anything.
