Confidentiality and data protection

Your doctor and other health professionals caring for you, keep records about your health and any treatment and care you receive from the National Health Service (NHS). These help ensure that you receive the best possible care from us. They may be written down (manual records), or held on a computer.

We have a comprehensive team of clinical and administrative staff who are trained in the requirements of both the Data Protection Act and NHS Information Governance.

If you would like to know more about what information we keep about you, how it is used and how you can gain access to your health records, ask for our patient leaflet Your Information.

Disabled access

All our surgeries have wheelchair access. Please ask at reception if you require assistance.

Zero Tolerance

This practice operates a zero tolerance policy against violence, abuse and discrimination towards doctors, practice/attached staff and other patients.

Such action could result in removal from the practice list.

Freedom of Information - Publication Scheme

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 obliges the practice to produce a Publication Scheme. A Publication Scheme is a guide to the 'classes' of information the practice intends to routinely make available.

This scheme is available from the practice manager.

GP Net Earnings

NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the Practice is publicised, and the required disclosure will be shown below by 31st March 2017.

However, it should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating earnings is potentially misleading, because it takes no account of how much time doctors spend working in the Practice and should not be used to form any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparison with any other practice.

The average pay for GPs working at Hardwicke House Group Practice during the year ended 31 March 2016 was £91,921 before tax and national insurance. This is for 15 full-time and part-time GPs who worked in the practice for more than 6 months.
