Put Patients First: Back General Practice Campaign
The Put patients first: Back general practice campaign is demanding that the governments of the UK increase funding for general practice from an historic low of 8.39% to 11% of the UK NHS budget by 2017. Read more about the crisis facing general practice, and the Put patients first: Back general practice campaign here www.rcgp.org.uk/campaign-home/about.
Petition to end the funding crisis
GPs put patients first every day—it is now time for the governments of the UK to do the same! Hard copy petitions have been sent to every GP practice in the UK, but if you can’t make it into your surgery to sign the petition, a link to the online version is here: http://www.rcgp.org.uk/campaign-home/get-involved/petition
Thank you for your support—it is critical that GPs and patients stand together to safeguard patient care in general practice.
Over the next few weeks, the NHS will be distributing leaflets to all households regarding the use of information from GP’s clinical systems.
If you are happy for your information to be used then you do not need to do anything. But if you have concerns or if you do not want information that identifies you from being shared outside your GP practice, please inform the surgery by phone, letter or ask for a form at reception. You will also be able to email your preference from our website very soon. Patients do not require an appointment with a GP to make their decision known.
We will make a note of your request in your medical record. This will prevent your information being used other than where necessary by law, such as in case of a public health emergency.
You will also be able to restrict the use of information held by other places you receive care from. However, this will not affect the care you receive.
You can change your mind at any time and as many times as you wish.
Information from GP practices will begin to be extracted and sent to the HSCIC (Health & Social Care Information Centre) in the spring 2014. The GP data will be linked with the hospital data already held by the HSCIC.
For more information about how data is collected and shared, including confidentiality, please visit the NHS England website www.nhs.uk/caredata or call their dedicated patient information line in relation to data sharing on 0300 456 3531. Translation and text phone services are also available.
Further information is also available from Dr Neil Bhattia's care-data.info site.
