Privacy Notice for Primary Care Services (Updated February 2019)

As of 1st July 2018, nine GP Practices are now part of the Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust (RWT), making the trust directly responsible for the delivery of care. These Practices are; Alfred Squire Road Health Centre, Penn Manor Medical Practice, Lea Road Medical Practice, Thornley Street Surgery, Dr’s Koodaruth & Williams (Warstones Health Centre), Lakeside Medical Centre, Coalway Road Surgery, West Park Surgery and Ettingshall Medical Centre.

This means that as a single organisation, the issues of scope of responsibility, funding, differing objectives and drivers will be removed allowing clinicians to design effective, high quality clinical pathways to improve appropriate access and positively impact patient outcomes. Over time, we aim to increase the number of services and locations from which you will be able to access GP services. 

The model is called Vertical integration (VI) which is a care model where primary care physicians and their teams work together with providers of secondary and community care as part of one single organisation, offering a unique opportunity to redesign services from initial patient contact through on-going management and end of life care.

Within the practices, trained staff members use electronic and paper records to create and maintain an in-depth history of your NHS medical care within the practice and elsewhere (eg. Hospital visits), to help ensure that you receive the best possible healthcare. Anyone who accesses your data within the practice can only do so using an authorised login that identifies them and provides an audit trail of the records accessed.

At the Royal Wolverhampton Trust, the Primary Care Services team aim to provide you with safe and effective care to the highest standards. To do this your doctor and the team of health professionals caring for you will keep records about your health and any care you receive from the Trust. This is called your Health Records and may be stored in a paper form or on computer systems. This may include:

 

  • Basic details as your name, address, date of birth, NHS number, gender, next of kin, and ethnicity
  • Details of your appointments at the Practice or home visits
  • Details of your hospital appointments/visits
  • Notes and reports about your health, treatment and care
  • Results of x-rays, scans and laboratory tests
  • Relevant information from people who care for you and know you well, such as health professionals and relatives
  • Allergies and sensitivities
  • Current and historical medication
  • Family history

Patient Participation Group (PPG)

The Practice would like to establish a Patient Participation Group (PPG). The PPG is a group of patients registered with the surgery who have no medical training but have an interest in the services provided. The aim of the PPG is to represent patients' views and cross barriers, embracing diversity and to work in partnership with the surgery to improve common understanding. If you would like to be a part of our PPG please contact the surgery and leave your contact details with us. Please understand the PPG is not for complaints or to discuss clinical issues.
