** IMPORTANT UPDATE FOR OUR PATIENTS**

COVID 19

If you have a new, persistent cough and/or a fever, and/or loss of taste or smell please do not come to the Health Centre, call NHS 24 on 111.

If you have any queries about COVID19, please visit www.nhsinform.scot/coronavirus

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Scottish Government requires General Practice and other healthcare settings to have different infection control and physical distancing guidance to other places such as hospitality and shops.  This is to help reduce the risk to practice staff and to people attending the practice who may be at greater risk if they catch Covid19. The following rules still apply in General Practice:

  1. Wearing of face coverings by patients and the public (unless you are exempt)
  2. Physical distancing of 2 metres in waiting rooms
  3. Contact your practice by telephone in the first instance
  4. Wearing of PPE by staff
  5. Screening of all patients for COVID 19 symptoms

Please support Comrie Medical Centre by complying with this guidance

Privacy Notice

Confidentiality

The practice complies with Data Protection and Access to Medical Records legislation. Identifiable information about you will be shared with others in the following circumstances:

  • To provide further medical treatment for you e.g. from district nurses and hospital services.
  • To help you get other services e.g. from the social work department. This requires your consent.
  • When we have a duty to others e.g. in child protection cases.

Anonymised patient information will also be used at local and national level to help the Health Board and Government plan services e.g. for diabetic care.

If you do not wish anonymous information about you to be used in such a way, please let us know. Reception and administration staff require access to your medical records in order to do their jobs. These members of staff are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the medical staff.

Freedom of Information

Information about the General Practitioners and the practice required for disclosure under this act can be made available to the public. All requests for such information should be made to the Practice Manager.

Access to Records

In accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018 and Access to Health Records Act, patients may request to see their medical records. Such requests should be made through the Practice Manager and may be subject to an administration charge. No information will be released without the patient consent unless we are legally obliged to do so.
