Useful contacts and support for patients

In order to help and support our patients we have devised a leaflet that identifies some of the wider services available that may be accessed to help with your social, emotional and extended healthcare needs. There is a limit to the number we could include but hope we have presented a variety of as many organisations as possible that are of both interest and relevance to out patient population. Any comments you may have would be very welcomed. Please click on the link following link Useful Contacts and Support.

Are you details up to date?

We ask that patients routinely check their contact details with ourselves – in particular mobile phone numbers and E-Mail addresses. We are trying to improve services and communication with our patients but an internal audit has shown that we only have in the region of 10% of these details verified. There are times when we need to urgently contact patients and therefore it is important we hold correct information. Please help us to help you!

Bounty and the Information Commissioner

You may be aware of a recent fine issued Bounty, a pregnancy and parenting club, by the Information Commissioner for sharing information with third parties without making the public aware. You can find more information by clicking this LINK. The practice takes privacy and lawful use of information seriously and works hard to ensure that our service providers, partners and suppliers are trustworthy and compliant and although the practice is not directly affiliated with Bounty, we have looked into the matter to provide our patients with reassurance.

The Information Commissioner has recognised that the information sharing was an historic practice that ceased before recent changes in data protection law came into force. Bounty have confirmed that they have stopped selling details of members who sign up and that they have implemented robust data protection practices. They also have a privacy policy that now explicitly states they have stopped sharing data with those data brokerage firms and will never sell members information in the future. Finally, they have appointed an independent data expert who will assess Bounty's procedures annually and publish the findings on the Bounty website.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do let us know.
