GDPR

We have have always taken very seriously our responsibilities for confidentiality and security of your records. The new GDPR legislation which comes into force on 25th May 2018 further strengthens the law in this area. There are two new leaflets for basic information: GDPR patient information, and How we use your records. For more information and to see our 4 privacy notices please see the Policies and information section of this website.

 

We are using text messaging for appointment reminders, recalls to clinics, appointment cancellations etc as part of direct patient care.

We would also like to use this for patient satisfaction surveys and occasional other uses not directly related to patient care.

Please could you let us know if you are happy for us to text you in this way. If you opt out we will not be able to use texting for any automated process such as appointment reminders.

Yes - I am happy to continue to recieve texts

Dr. Rush's patients

Please note that patients who were registered with Dr Rush are now registered with Dr Bains. If you have any queries please contact the practice who will be able to help you.


Repeat prescription reordering

From 18th April 2017 repeat prescription requests will be processed by the NHS Prescription Ordering Direct Service and the practice will no longer take requests for repeat prescriptions from your pharmacy.

You will need to phone the POD service on 0300 131 1100 to order your medicines instead of phoning or visiting your pharmacy to make an order. The POD will arrange for your prescription to be sent electronically to a pharmacy of your choice and dispensed as normal.

This is a pilot service being run by DGS & Swale CCG’s for 12 months, alongside other GP Practices. This will help to deliver improved care to patients and reduce medicines waste. The CCG, on behalf of the practice, will process your personal data (with your consent) in order to review and manage your repeat prescription.


Patient services online

The Oaks Partnership would like to encourage our patients to sign up to online services due to changes coming into effect from 25th May 2018.

Signing up to GP online services will able you to use the website for your convenience, relieve pressure on reception staff and satisfy GDPR Regulation.


Our Vision online service has been migrated to the new Patient Services website:

www.patient-services.co.uk on 18th January.The new website is faster, easier to use and works on smartphones and tablets as well as computers. You will need to change any shortcuts you have created to the new website although you will be redirected from the Vision online website for a period of time. 

 

To register for online services please download the registration form  from this website or collect from reception. You will need to provide proof of address and ID.

 

Repeat prescription ordering will be through Patient services. You can continue to use the Prescription request form on this website for non-repeat items but will need to provide additional information for each drug requested.

 

We regret that we are no longer accepting registrations for under 16 year olds because of the difficult issues of consent and confidentiality for 11-16 year olds under current legislation.


It is also possible to view a summary of your records if you choose to enable this on registration. You can view allergy and prescription records, your test results and medical history with appropriate consent.

Minor surgery

Funding has recently been withdrawn for GP minor surgery cosmetic procedures such as removal of moles where there is no suspicion of cancer. Regrettably this will greatly curtail the service we have been providing. We can still remove lesions where there is repeated infection or bleeding and we would still encourage you to see us if there has been any change in an existing mole
