There are certain services that patients request which are not covered by the
National Health Service, i.e. pre-employment medicals, HGV, PSV, completion of
private health insurance claim forms, vaccination certificates, etc. for which
there will be a charge, details available at Reception.
We welcome suggestions about how we can improve your medical services. If you
have any comments, compliments or complaints please pass them on to your doctor
or any one of the practice team. Alternatively you can put them in writing.
Complaints specifically should be addressed to Dr. M. J. Fallon. We aim to

PROTECTION AND USE OF YOUR INFORMATION - Your records are safe with us
We ask for information about yourself so that you can receive the best possible
care and treatment. We only pass on information about you to people who have a
genuine need for it (i.e. hospital Consultants). Whenever we can, we will remove
details that identify you as an individual. Everyone working for the NHS has a
legal duty to maintain the highest level of confidentiality about patient
information. If at any time you would like to know more about how we use your
information ask to speak to Jane Read, Practice Manager.
