NHS Services

A selection of our services at Medwyn

Respiratory Disease

Our practice nurses have been trained in the management of asthma and chronic lung disease. Regular appointments are available on request.

Diabetes

Weekly diabetic clinics are held jointly with our Practice Nurse and Diabetic Nurse Specialist on Thursday afternoons from 1 – 3.30pm.

Child Health Development

Child immunisation and child health surveillance clinics are held every Tuesday afternoon from 2pm to 4pm with either Dr Louise Tomei or Dr Anne-Marie Quirk and the health visitor. They can answer any concerns you may have regarding your child’s development or immunisations.

Minor Surgery

Minor surgical procedures are performed by the doctors on a Tuesday morning from 8.30am – 11am.

Phlebotomy

This clinic runs on a daily basis. An appointment is required.

Smoking Cessation

Appointments available with a practice nurse who will provide support and advice on giving up smoking. An appointment is required.

Antenatal Care

Antenatal clinics are available with the midwife on Monday and Tuesday afternoons as part of the shared care programme with East Surrey Hospital.

Travel Health

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements.  This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.  There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below. Please note that there is currently a national shortage of Hep A vaccinations.  The surgery has very limited stock therefore the vaccination may not be available at the time of your travel.

Fit for Travel

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible  – at least 6 weeks before you travel – as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations.  These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine.  Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge.  This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.

Yellow Fever

Specialist advice/immunisation for travel to all areas of the world can be provided by our trained practice nurses. We are a registered yellow Fever Clinic. If possible, please contact the practice nurse two months before your date of travel as some vaccinations take time to work and need a course of treatment.

There may be a charge for some vaccines.

Accessing Your Online Medical Record

Patients can now view information from their medical records online, including immunization history, allergies, adverse reactions, results, problems and other clinically coded information.

This is in addition to the facility to book and cancel appointments and order repeat prescriptions.

To register for this service, you will need access to the online portal SystmOnline. If you do not have a username and password, these can be requested by clicking on this link and click on the “sign up option”. Your user details will then be sent to you via email.

If you do have user details, you can log into the portal and click on “manage online services” and select from the options the practice has made available to you which include summary care record and detailed coded record. The summary care option will allow you to view a shortened version of your record which will include blood test results, immunization history allergies, adverse reactions while the detail coded record is similar to the summary care record however will also include clinically coded information. Once you have made your selection, your request will automatically be sent to the practice.

Once the request is received, you will be emailed an information leaflet and a consent form which you will need to complete and return to the surgery bringing with you photo identification (e.g. passport or driving license) and proof of address (e.g. utility bill/council tax bill) to prevent identity fraud. Alternatively, consent forms are available at reception.

Access to online medical records is granted at the discretion of the practice. Your request for access may take up to 15 working days to process.

Test Results

Results of most blood tests will usually be available after two working days and can be viewed by logging into your online record. Permissions to make your information available to your online account will need to be requested prior to them being visible but this is a once off application. Please ask at reception for the application form to complete. Scan and x-ray reports are not usually available until two weeks after the test was performed.

Should you call the surgery for result, we can only give results to the person on whom the test was performed. Test results will not be given to other family members unless they are for a child.

We would be grateful if you could request your results after 1pm when the surgery is less busy. We are not able to email results directly to you as we wish to ensure that your confidentiality is maintained.

Research

Medwyn Surgery has been a member of the South Coast Primary Care Network since 2009. It received accreditation as a Research Ready Surgery in 2010 by the Royal College of General Practitioners. This signifies the practice has achieved 5 core competencies and has up to date knowledge of the sandards that are needed to undertake research and physical facilities required to successfully comply with demands based on the latest research governance frameworks.

You may be asked to consider participation within reseach studies at the practice. This helps to support knowledge and understanding of modern health treatments. However, there is no obligation for you to take part in research and if you choose not to you can be assured of receiving our normal high standard of care.

Sick Certificates

You do not require a doctor’s sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.

Evidence That You Are Sick

If you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).

Your employer can ask you to confirm that you’ve been ill. You can do this by filling in a form yourself when you return to work. This is called self-certification.

If you’re sick and off work for more than seven days, your employer will probably ask for proof of your illness. Most employers ask for a fit note from your GP.

However, this will also depend on your employer’s company policy on sick leave (or sickness absence). This policy should tell you how many days you can be off sick before you need to provide proof of illness or a fit note.

You could also provide evidence from someone who is not a medical practitioner, e.g. a dentist. Your employer will decide whether or not this evidence is acceptable. If your employer has any doubts, they may still ask for a medical certificate from your GP.

Statement of Fitness for Work – ’Fit Note’

The ‘fit note’ was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer’s support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.

For more information see the DirectGov website (where this information was sourced).

Collection of information

This practice is required to supply personal health data to comply with its legal obligations from time to time, as directed by the Secretary of State for Health, or other recognised Statutory Authority.

From January 2016, the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) will soon begin to collect anonymous data from the general practice clinical system on patients who have been issued with a fit note. This information is required by the HSCIC under section 259(1) of the Health and Social Care Act 2012. In line with section 259(5) of the Act, all general practices in England must comply with this requirement and provide information to the HSCIC in the form, manner and period specified in this Data Provision Notice. This Notice is issued in accordance with the procedure published as part of the HSCIC duty under Section 259(8).

Anonymised data on the use of fit notes is being provided to the HSCIC on behalf of Department of Health, and the Department for Work and Pensions. This will enable the Department for Work and Pensions to undertake research analysis to inform policy relating to employment and sickness absence, including evaluation of Fit for Work.

The data collected includes the type and duration of the fit note, recommendations for adjustments to enable a return to work, diagnostic codes, geographic area and gender.

You may want to prevent confidential information about you from being shared or used for any purpose other than providing your care. If you do not want information that identifies you to be shared outside your GP practice, please inform the practice and we will make a note of this in your medical record.

This will prevent your confidential information from being used other than in special circumstances required by law, such as a public health emergency. This is known as a type 1 objection.

The HSCIC also makes national collections of information from other places where you receive care, such as hospitals and community services. They only release this information in identifiable form where there is legal approval to do so. You can opt out of this identifiable information leaving the HSCIC for purposes beyond your direct care. This is known as a type 2 objection. The only exceptions to this are very rare circumstances, such as a civil emergency or a public health emergency.

Self Referral for Counselling

There are many things you can do if you are feeling low or anxious, finding it difficult at work, having problems sleeping or just finding it difficult to cope with the challenges of life.

Alternatively, consent forms are available at reception.

Access to online medical records is granted at the discretion of the practice. Your request for access may take up to 15 working days to process.

Your Health Record

Doctors have always had the discretion to allow patients to see their health records and to share information where appropriate with the carers of children and incapacitated adults. Additionally in recent years Acts of Parliament have given certain statutory rights of access to records. None of the legislation prevents doctors from informally showing patients their records or, bearing in mind duties of confidentiality, discussing relevant health issues with carers.

The implementation of data protection legislation in early 2000 changed patients’ statutory rights of access to their health records. The purpose of this guidance is to set out in some detail the legal requirements on doctors as holders of health records. This summary highlights the main points.

What records are covered?
All manual and computerised health records about living people are accessible under the Data Protection Act 1998.

Does it matter when the records were made?
No, access must be given equally to all records regardless of when they were made.

Does the Act cover all of the UK?
Yes.

Who can apply for access?
Competent patients may apply for access to their own records, or may authorise a third party, such as their lawyer, to do so on their behalf. Parents may have access to their child’s records if this is in the child’s best interests and not contrary to a competent child’s wishes. People appointed by a court to manage the affairs of mentally incapacitated adults may have access to information necessary to fulfil their function.

Are there any exemptions?
Yes, the main exemptions are that information must not be disclosed if it:

is likely to cause serious physical or mental harm to the patient or another person; or

relates to a third party who has not given consent for disclosure (where that third party is not a health professional who has cared for the patient).

Must copies of the records be given if requested?
Yes, patients are entitled to a copy of their records, for example a photocopy of paper records or print out of computerised records.

Is it necessary for patients to make a formal application for access to see their records?
No, nothing in the law prevents doctors from informally showing patients their records or, bearing in mind duties of confidentiality, discussing relevant health issues with carers.

Can a fee be charged?
Yes, and the fee varies depending on the type of record and whether the patient wants copies of the records or just to see them.

To provide access and copies:
Records held totally on computer: £11
Records held in part on computer and in part manually: a reasonable fee of up to £50
Records held totally manually: a reasonable fee of up to £50
To allow patients to read their records (where no copy is required):
Records held totally on computer: £11
Records held in part on computer and in part manually: £11
Records held totally manually: £11 unless the records have been added to in the last 40 days when no charge can be made
If you are applying to access your health record you will need to Complete this form

Provide two types of identification as well as proof of current address. Photocopies should initially be provided, but original copies must be available when collecting your information

An initial administration fee of £11.00 will be charged. This must be paid by cash or cheque. Please make all cheques payable to Dr
Monella and Partners

There may be an additional charge payable when you collect your results as detailed above.

What about access to the records of deceased patients?
The Data Protection Act 1998 only covers the records of living patients. If a person has a claim arising from the death of an individual, he or she has a right of access to information in the deceased’s records necessary to fulfil that claim. These rights are set out in the Access to Health Records Act 1990 or Access to Health Records (Northern Ireland) Order 1993. The provisions and fees are slightly different from those in the Data Protection Act.

If you wish to access your medical records please contact reception for an application form.

Guidance on confidentiality and on sharing information with relatives and carers is available from the BMA’s Medical Ethics Department.

Freedom of Information
The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act was passed on 30 November 2000. It gives a general right of access to all types of recorded information held by public authorities, with full access granted in January 2005. The Act sets out exemptions to that right and places certain obligations on public authorities.

FOI replaced the Open Government Code of Practice, which has been in operation since 1994.

For information about the Freedom of Information Act model publication scheme click here.

Data Protection and FOI – how do the two interact?
The Data Protection Act 1998 came into force on 1 March 2000. It provides living individuals with a right of access to personal information held about them. The right applies to all information held in computerised form and also to non-computerised information held in filing systems structured so that specific information about particular individuals can retrieved readily.

Individuals already have the right to access information about themselves (personal data), which is held on computer and in some paper files under the Data Protection Act 1998.

The right also applies to those archives that meet these criteria. However, the right is subject to exemptions, which will affect whether information is provided. Requests will be dealt with on a case by case basis.

The Freedom of Information Act and the Data Protection Act are the responsibility of the Lord Chancellor’s Department. A few of its strategic objectives being:

To improve people’s knowledge and understanding of their rights and responsibilities
Seeking to encourage an increase in openness in the public sector
Monitoring the Code of Practice on Access to Government Information
Developing a data protection policy which properly balances personal information privacy with the need for public and private organisations to process personal information
The Data Protection Act does not give third parties rights of access to personal information for research purposes.

The FOI Act does not give individuals access to their personal information, though if a request is made, the Data Protection Act gives the individual this right. If the individual chooses to make this information public it could be used alongside non-personal information gained by the public under the terms of the FOI Act.

Docmail
The Surgery now uses Docmail to process some correspondence to patients. Docmail do not do anything with patient information other than print off and post correspondence for us. No patient data is held by the company or passed to anyone else, and all Information and Data Protection regulations are upheld. All patients’ rights are fully protected.

Complaints

Making a Complaint

If you have a complaint or concern about the service you have received from the doctors or any of the staff working in this practice, please let us know. We operate a practice complaints procedure with conforms with NHS recommendations and national criteria.

We hope that most problems can be sorted out easily and quickly, often at the time they arise and with the person concerned. If your problem cannot be sorted out in this way and you wish to make a complaint, we would like you to let us know as soon as possible, ideally, within a matter of days or at most a few weeks – this will enable us to establish what happened more easily. If it is not possible to do that, please let us have details of your complaint:

Within 6 months of the incident that caused the problem or
Within 6 months of discovering that you have a problem, provided this is within 12 months of the incident.
Complaints should be addressed to the Practice Manager or any of the doctors. Alternatively, you may ask for an appointment with the Practice Manager in order to discuss your concerns. He will explain the complaints procedure to you and will make sure that your concerns are dealt with promptly. It will be a great help if you are as specific as possible about your complaint.

What we will do

We will acknowledge your complaint within two working days and aim to have looked into your complaint within ten working days of the date when you raised the complaint with us. We shall then be in a position to offer you an explanation, or a meeting with the person(s) involved. When we look into your complaint, we shall aim to:

Find out what happened and what went wrong
Make it possible for you to discuss the problem with those concerned, if you would like this
Make sure you receive an apology, where this is appropriate
Identify what we can do to make sure the problem does not happen again
Complaining on behalf of someone else
Please note that we keep strictly to the rules of medical confidentiality. If you are complaining on behalf of someone else, we have to know that you have his or her permission to do so. A note signed by the person concerned will be needed, unless they are incapable (because of illness) of providing this.

Complaining to NHS England

We hope that, if you have a problem, you will use our practice complaints procedure. We believe this will give us the best chance of putting right whatever has gone wrong and an opportunity to improve our practice. This does not affect your right to approach NHS England and speak to the Complaints Manager on 0300 311 22 33 for further advice or email england.contactus@nhs.net.

You may also like to contact Surrey ICAS – Surrey Independent Complaints Advocacy Service. Patients can contact them by telephone on 01753 552227

Care Data.Gov

A modern information system has been developed, which will make increased use of information from medical records with the intention of improving health services. It is important that the NHS can use this information to get a complete picture of what is happening across health and social care and to plan services according to what works best.

Your date of birth, full postcode, NHS Number and gender rather than your name will be used to link your records in a secure system, managed by the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC). Once this information has been linked a new record will be created. This new record will not contain information that identifies you. The type of information shared, and how it is shared, is controlled by law and strict confidentiality rules.

The new system will also provide information that will enable the public to hold the NHS to account and ensure that any unacceptable standards of care are identified as quickly as possible. Information will help to:

find more effective ways of preventing, treating and managing illnesses
guide local decisions about changes that are needed to respond to the needs of local patients
support public health by anticipating risks of particular diseases and conditions, and help us to take action to prevent problems
improve the public’s understanding of the outcomes of care, giving them confidence in health and care services
guide decisions about how to manage NHS resources so that they can best support the treatment and management of illness for the benefit of patients

If you are happy for your information to be used then you do not need to do anything. But if you have concerns you should talk to your GP.

If you do not want information that identifies you from being shared outside your GP practice, talk to a member of staff at your practice or download an opt out form here, complete it and give it to the surgery. They will make a note of this 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.

For more information about how data is collected and shared, including confidentiality, please visit the “sharing your Data” section on the NHS Choices website.

Occasionally, medical students from St George’s Hospital in London will be attached to Medwyn Surgery. During their time at the practice they will observe consultations with the doctor or nurse. This is an essential part of training the next generation of doctors who could be responsible for your future care. Reception staff will always ask if you agree to a medical student oberving your consultation. If you would prefer not to have a student present during your consultation please let us know.

Summary Care Record

There is a new Central NHS Computer System called the Summary Care Record (SCR). It is an electronic record which contains information about the medicines you take, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had.

Why do I need a Summary Care Record?

Storing information in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when your GP practice is closed.

This information could make a difference to how a doctor decides to care for you, for example which medicines they choose to prescribe for you.

Who can see it?

Only healthcare staff involved in your care can see your Summary Care Record.

How do I know if I have one?

Over half of the population of England now have a Summary Care Record. You can find out whether Summary Care Records have come to your area by looking at our interactive map or by asking your GP

Do I have to have one?

No, it is not compulsory. If you choose to opt out of the scheme, then you will need to complete a form and bring it along to the surgery. You can use the form at the foot of this page.

More Information

For further information visit the NHS Care records website or the HSCIC Website

GP Earnings

All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.

The average pay for GPs working in Medwyn Surgery in the last financial year was £62,296 before tax and National Insurance.

This is for three full time GPs and six part time GPs who have worked in the practice for more than six months.

Friends of Medwyn

The staff of Medwyn Surgery have a very clear objective.They want to provide their patients with the best possible service, not only in medical care, but also in terms of health information and awareness, the environment of the surgery and doctor / patient relationships. As part of this initiative, we have formed a Group called “Friends of Medwyn”.

The functions of the Friends of Medwyn will be:

  • To provide a means of communication between patients & Medwyn staff. Not for individual issues (which are, of course, a matter between a patient & his or her G.P.), but for general issues, both medical & non-medical, affecting patients in general.
  • To provide information on medical issues (e.g., background medical information, sources of information such as leaflets & internet websites, new clinical developments, support groups for various medical conditions, NHS news, etc.)
  • To keep patients up to date on Medwyn surgery itself (e.g. new administrative procedures, new equipment, new staff etc.)
  • To raise money for the Medwyn surgery. The money we raise will go towards providing equipment & facilities to Medwyn, for the benefit of patients & for the surgery as a whole. We would be grateful for any donations and, if you would like to make a donation, please send or take a cheque to the surgery & make your cheque payable to “Friends of Medwyn”.

Members of the Friends of Medwyn Committee are:
