Important Notice

 

If you or a family member have flown back from China in the last 2 weeks, and you feel unwell with flu-like symptoms, shortness of breath/breathing difficulties and/or diarrhoea, PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY. Please stay at home and call us on 01279 842242, tell the Receptionist you have recently returned from China and a GP will call you with further instructions.

The dispensary will be closed on Thursdays at 2pm from 30th January for staff training. This is an interim measure and we hope to resume full service by end of March.

There is a new dispensary email address for ordering your repeat medication:

muchhadham.pharmacy@nhs.net

Please update your records ASAP from the much.hadham@nhs.net email address as this will only be used for clinical correspondence in the future. Thank you 

Confidentiality

blue_folder_lockThe practice complies with Data Protection and Access to Medical Records legislation. Identifiable information about you will be shared with others in the following circumstances:

  • To provide further medical treatment for you e.g. from district nurses and hospital services.
  • To help you get other services e.g. from the social work department. This requires your consent.
  • When we have a duty to others e.g. in child protection cases anonymised patient information will also be used at local and national level to help the Health Board and Government plan services e.g. for diabetic care.

If you do not wish anonymous information about you to be used in such a way, please let us know.

Reception and administration staff require access to your medical records in order to do their jobs. These members of staff are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the medical staff.
