We are registered under the Data Protection Act. Clinical information as well as registration details are recorded to assist us in providing you with quality medical care. Greyfriars is a “paper-lite” Practice. Our computer systems have been upgraded such that all clinical notes, including laboratory results and letters from hospital, are instantly available to the doctor or nurse on their computer screen. This has greatly improved the efficiency of record keeping and retrieval.
In order to maintain accurate records we ask you to tell us of any change in your particulars: name, address or telephone number etc. If you move outside the practice area, we will be unable to continue to care for you.
From April 2015, Dumfries & Galloway Royal Infirmary are now able to access some data from your medical record at the practice, for example:
- Current and repeat prescriptions
- Allergies / adverse drug reactions
- Operations / procedures undertaken
- Blood Pressure
This data sharing will help the hospital staff enormously if you need to attend the hospital routinely or in an emergency
Confidentiality and the Data Protection Act will be observed at all times
If you do not wish the practice to share this information with Dumfries & Galloway Royal Infirmary, please let us know
